Getting Kids Out Into Nature

Winter Snowshoes

Getting out with kids in the winter can be a bit more challenging than the summer, but the rewards are worth it. We are newer to snowshoeing, and are enjoying exploring different areas in the winter. Here are some kid-friendly trips we’ve done and recommend.

Gold Creek Pond (I-90 at Hyak)

Smithbrook Road (Hwy 2 near the Nordic Center)

Swauk Forest Discovery Trail (Blewett Pass, Hwy 97)

Salmon Ridge Sno-Park (Hwy 542 below Mt. Baker)
