Snowshoeing at Snow Hare Trail, Golden Gate Canyon State Park

Amazing bluebird skies, a little windy but a wonderful 4-mile winter hike in the beautiful snow!

Snow Hare Trail is located inside Golden Gate Canyon State Park. Daily park passes are $10 per vehicle and can be purchased at the self-service kiosk at the parking lot or entrance into the park.

This trail is a well marked, forested trail with views here and there, some rolling hills with steep inclines to get the heart going. The sun peaked in and out of the snow packed trail, and definitely glad to have snow shoes as there were some deep pockets.

This trail would also be great for a spring/summer/fall hike, with a quick snack/lunch break at Dude’s Fishing Hole.

Note: I always use All Trails app to keep me on track! Here’s a link to the trail!
