Embrace the cold weather by getting outdoors for lantern-lit walks and guided snowshoe hikes. Shift your plans for the coming year into high gear with a resolution to explore Michigan's great outdoors throughout 2018. In the coming weeks, there are a number of snow-worthy events taking place in state parks that can be navigated on your own time. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and hiking are fun winter activities that get you exploring the beauty of winter and many state parks and recreation areas open their trails up for these activities in the winter months.
