No skis or snowshoes? Don’t worry. You can enjoy the majestic beauty of a Traverse City winter even if you don’t have any winter sports equipment. Just lace up your boots, button your coat and tug down your cap for a good long winter hike! It’s all a matter of finding the right place where the snow isn’t too deep, and that can be anything from a walk along the shore, a stroll through Traverse City’s many charming neighborhoods, or a brisk walk along the Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation (TART) Trail, which is usually kept cleared for walkers and hikers.
