Hiking rivers in the winter is a fun way to explore. When the snow is deep you can easily get over any downed trees or obstacles in the way. You don’t have to deal with slippery rocks or getting your feet wet. We strapped on our snowshoes and made our way up the Devil Track River the other day. There was a beaten path so we didn’t really need our snowshoes but it was easy travel. We went as far as we could go and were treated to a beautiful partially frozen waterfall. The frozen falls in the photo below is a different waterfall that people like to ice climb. Soon the rivers will be liquid once again but until then I’ll take advantage of these icy, snow covered trails.
