Winter on the Platte River Trails offers a magical and whimsical experience not found during the spring and summer months. While it’s common to consider the trails most frequented during warmer weather, the snow, frosted foliage, and icy North Platte River make the Platte River Trails a unique winter wonderland right in our own backyards. Experience the wintery magic on the trails with this guide to the best winter activities on the trails.
Winter Trail Activities
The trails are a great outdoor recreation spot year-round (yes, even in the cold!). This winter, stick to old favorites or explore new activities throughout our trail network!
Winter Trail Flora & Fauna
Insects have stopped moving about and grass has stopped growing, but the trails are still very much alive and full of critter activity in the winter. For those that don’t go south for the season, you can expect to see them along the trails!
Winter Trail Best Practices
To get the most enjoyment from your winter trail excursions, it’s important to dress appropriately and adhere to best practices when it comes to cold temperatures. Before you hit the trails, arm yourself with the proper knowledge and attire for a successful adventure.
