Some of the most beautiful landscapes you’ll find in Michigan can only be found in winter! Here are a few items that are great for getting outdoors when the temperatures are freezing and the snow is piling up.
Hiking on trails can be difficult this time of year. Improve balance and stability while hiking using trekking poles! Used as a single pole or as a pair, trekking poles can take pressure off your joints along snow covered trails while greatly enhancing steadiness. Trekking poles work well for spring, summer and fall hiking trips as well! We have trekking poles from MOUNTAINSMITH and PINNACLE in stock.
