Smile Good places to trail ride during winter

I love trail riding, and I would love to be able to continue going off property over the winter season. I have a membership for the hamilton conservation areas in southern ontario, and I was wondering if there are any other good areas to go ride at???? Also if anyone has any tips for solutions for tender back feet, it would be greatly appreciated.

No suggestions for riding in Canada. But I do enjoy riding in the winter.

We often travel to areas south of where I live to ride in the desert areas of Utah.

The desert areas don't get as much snow as we get closer to home.


Winter rides also allow me to get closer to wild animals.


And there is nothing quite as stunning as a clear winter day

That list is so helpful! And I unfortunately can't go down south to ride, I'm still in school.

Just the opposite problem here. Winter is great for riding. Summers are hot and humid.

I'd love to go south and ride in the mountains but that is a little out of the question for me. The trails at The Ranch (where I board) are good, but riding them for 5 years straight a little old. Lol.
