In the cold and snowy parts of the year, mountain biking gives way to hiking for my adventure recreation.
Most of the trails that I ride for 10 months of the year are now covered in snow and ice. This makes for poor mountain biking conditions (for me at least).
So, in order to get outside and make an attempt to stay in shape, hiking is the order of the day. Well, that and riding the spin bike at home.
Even in the snow, most every trail around Prescott is still hiking friendly. Of course there are exceptions to every rule, but let’s not concentrate on them.
Within a 15 minute drive from downtown are miles and miles of great day hike trails. And now with snow on the ground in the mountains, all the little creeks and drainages are running with crystal clear and icy cold water. This makes for some great photographs and nice sound effects too.
So bundle up, put on your hiking shoes and get out there! Its a winter wonderland.
