Winter is here, and that means everyone’s going to want to cozy up indoors thanks to plunging temperatures. But with warm coats, winter boots, and oversized sweaters, venturing into the great outdoors can feel refreshing and save you from attracting a winter chill. (Besides, you’re totally going to want a break from watching all of those holiday movies!)
And because the U.S. is home to some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world, what better place to explore than your own home roots. From the Rocky Mountains to the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park, every state has natural beauty that’s primed for exploring—even in the winter time. In fact, a snowcapped mountainous landscape sounds like an adventurer’s dream!
Feel like taking a walk? Join us for our virtual 5K on October 1, 2022. It’s totally free, and you can even create a team to walk with your friends or family, no matter where they’ll be (if you each grab one of our exclusive Virtual Walk t-shirts, you’ll really feel like a walking team!). Register here, and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Happy walking!
Even if cold weather isn’t really your thing, you can escape to some warmer climates in the U.S., like some parts of Florida and Texas, which are home to beautiful walking trails. Whether you’re looking to exercise to walk for weight loss or simply explore nature, we’ve put together a list of the most beautiful walking trail based on your state. You’ll be sure to find one you like, as we’ve mapped out the difficulty, location, and key points to hit at each destination.
You could even make it a fun 2022 goal to check every single one off of your list! Be sure to pack your sunscreen, bug spray, and walking shoes—and happy exploring!
