Other winter hiking tips relate to personal items such as boots and clothing. Without proper hiking gear you may not enjoy this winter experience at all. Winter hiking trails are challenging, they are slippery and may have semi-frozen sections that can get your feet wet. Please, make sure you wear appropriate winter hiking boots. A pair of hiking poles will help you enjoy the winter hiking trail even more. Winter nature photography will require that you wear fingerless gloves. Make sure that the palm of the glove has some kind of leather, because knitted or fabric gloves do not provide the grip needed to hold the camera.
