Wolf Ridge Snow Tubing

Hiking in the winter is great for many reasons – the first probably being that there aren’t any bugs! See our big hiking guide for some suggestions of fun trails.

And if you’d like to see some gorgeous waterfalls, see our Winter Waterfall Driving Tour (you may get lucky and even see from frozen falls!).

Day trips are also a way to have fun together on the long weekend. We’ve got a huge Travel page for you to browse for ideas.
