Draper City Winter Snowshoe/Hiking Class

Winter Showshoe Hiking Header

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 our extensive trail system. This four-week program features a new trail weekly to introduce winter recreation opportunities right outside your back door! Snowshoes and poles will be provided, along with information from your guide on the area’s history, flora, and fauna.

The trails used are within the Protected Watershed Area. Please leave your dog at home.

Registration

Registration opens September 4, 2023, and closes one week before each session. Classes fill quickly, so register early. Online registration is available or registration can be done in person at the Draper City Parks and Recreation office.

What to Bring

We will be spending approximately 2-3 hours on the trails and away from our cozy vehicles in cold temperatures. Layer up with clothing other than cotton, as cotton absorbs sweat and causes body temperatures to drop. Snowshoeing equipment will be provided, but you should bring:

• Winter gloves
• Winter boots — waterproof and insulated
• Two (2) quarts of water
• Snacks
• Extra clothing
• Beanie or other type of hat
• Sunglasses and sunscreen
