Don't barricade yourself indoors just because the temperatures have dropped and snow has covered some of your favorite trails. The winter months are a great time to get outdoors, fill your lungs with crisp mountain air, and visit some of your most-loved summer trails. Washington offers winter adventurers a wealth of trails, many with beautiful vistas and mountain lakes, that are still easily accessible in the snowy seasons. Check road and weather conditions before heading out and be sure to pack enough water.
