Winter Trail Etiquette

Snowshoes or skis should be used on all trails where snow is 10 inches or deeper.
  • Snowshoes or skis are required in the High Peaks Wilderness.
  • Using snowshoes eases travel on snow and prevents "post holing", which can ruin trails and cause sudden falls resulting in injuries.
  • Snowshoers and hikers should avoid walking on cross-country ski tracks wherever possible.
  • Trail crampons should be carried for use on icy portions of the trails including summits and other exposed areas.
  • Traveling in deep snow takes more energy and time - especially when traveling through freshly fallen snow - plan accordingly.
