Winter will surely show it’s face soon. We have been very lucky with these temperatures holding in the mid 50s for so long now. In preparation for the upcoming Winter Hiking, Cross country Skiing and Snow shoeing activities, I have gone through my personal notes, and logged all the wonderful suggestions I received from all you Hikers out there, and put together a two page WINTER TIPS sheet.

The sheets take all the ideas that many hikers have suggested and combines them into some great ideas for what to bring along while out for Winter activities, as well as how to dress, what types of clothing and materials and even some suggested retail prices on all of these items.

I hope this will assist everyone in having an even better winter outdoor experience this year, in S.E. Michigan Parks. Whether it is Hiking, Bushwhacking, Cross country Skiing, Snow shoeing, building snowman, sledding or just shoveling the driveway, there should be some great suggestion in these two sheets, just for you.
