The walks start at 1:00 pm, last 2 hours, and cover 1 to 2 miles of moderate-to-strenuous terrain. The route is up to the ranger, but most walks begin at Rim Village and explore the forests and meadows along the rim of the lake. The park’s north entrance and Rim Drive are closed to cars in the winter, but the west and south entrances are plowed daily and are open to automobiles throughout the year.
The walks will take place on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays from December 8 through April 28. They will also be offered daily from December 15 through January 6, except on Christmas Day. Snowshoes are provided free of charge for these hikes and no previous snowshoeing experience is necessary. Space on each tour is limited and advance reservations are required.
