Winter is a perfect time to visit with tons of activities including snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and hiking one of the greatest hiking trails in the country, the Pine Creek Rail Trail.

Hundreds of Miles of Hiking Trails

Elk viewing is a popular activity in the winter months. They are easily seen as their coats stand out against the white snow. In colder months, elk typically remain in large groups and seek warmth and shelter among the trees. Bull elk will shed their antlers each winter.
