Reader Participation Day: Which Is Your Favorite Winter's Day Hike In the Parks?
If you are in reach of a unit of the National Park System in the coming months, is there a particular hike that is a must-do in your opinion?
Winter is coming to the country, and that means snow, ice, and fewer leaves in the northern half of the National Park System, while mild, if not warm or even hot, days are on tap across the southern half. Those contrasting conditions translate into a wide array of hiking conditions -- both under foot and in the surrounding landscape.
Do you look forward to snowshoeing in the parks, or prefer to leave your footprints in the sand along beaches in places such as Padre Island National Seashore or Virgin Islands National Park?
Share your winter hiking secrets with the rest of the Traveler readership.
