Winter Time Hiking

So, You’re tired of skiing, your knees hurt from snowboarding, and your muscles are tight.  Time to stay in the hotel room?  Not if you like beautiful scenery and  stretching your muscles.  Hiking in the Winter can be the time of year to see wildlife and with the lack of foliage – long range views.  Beech Mountain offers over 30 miles of hiking trails, all maintained by the Town of Beech Mountain.  Think the snow is too deep to get out on the trails?  Stop by the Recreation Center first and trade in your hiking shoes for snowshoes, with their brand new snowshoe rental program.  Either way, get out there and enjoy Winter!  For trail maps, stop by the Visitor Center or Fred’s General Mercantile.
