Draper City Winter Snowshoe/Hiking Class 2018
What:Don’t let winter get you down. Escape the inversion and gray skies and join other Draper residents on a winter hike. Starting in January, Draper City Recreation will be providing a snowshoe course on Draper’s own extensive trail system. Come enjoy an introductory level guided snowshoe adventure with other outdoor enthusiasts. This four week program will feature a new trail every week to introduce the winter recreation opportunities right out your back door! Snowshoes and poles will be provided along with information from your guide on the area’s history, flora, and fauna. Sign up soon as the class will fill up fast!
The trails we will be using will be within the Protected Watershed Area. Please leave your dog at home.

*Hikes and locations are subject to change due to inclement weather. Make up hikes will be available if needed.
What to Bring:Be prepared for cold temperatures as we will be spending approximately 2-3 hours on the trails and away from our cozy vehicles. Remember to layer up with clothing other than cotton; as cotton will absorb sweat and cause your body temperature to drop. Even though it will be cold, you will be surprised by the work out snowshoeing will provide. Below is a list of items you should bring each week:
- Winter Gloves
- Winter Boots–waterproof and insulated
- 2 quarts of water
- Extra clothing
- Beanie or other type of hat
- Sunglasses and sunscreen
- Small backpack
