Snowshoe Through a Tranquil Winter Wonderland
Davis County’s 500 miles of trails aren’t just for summer. Snowshoeing is winter’s answer to hiking, and ideal snowshoeing terrain is easily accessible from Bountiful, Farmington and Layton. The serenity of the quiet backcountry is unmatched, so strap on those snowshoes and discover peaceful Farmington Creek for lofty views of Farmington Canyon, trek from Mueller Park to Elephant Rock for panoramic views of the Great Salt Lake, or seek out Adams Canyon’s frozen 40-foot waterfall. The views are majestic, the powder is fresh and, best of all, snowshoeing is a relatively inexpensive pastime for all ages.
Ice Skating Indoors or Out
There’s something magical about the cold air kissing your cheeks as you glide across the ice. Novice and avid ice skaters of all ages will enjoy taking a spin around the new ice ribbon at Bountiful Town Square, the indoor rink at South Davis Recreation Center, or ice skating at Station Park’s seasonal outdoor rink. Enjoy a bit of shopping, then cozy up in front of Station Park’s hourly fountain show with a cup of hot cocoa for a relaxing end to your Davis winter getaway.
Shopping, arts and indoor amusement
Endless amusement, both indoors and out, easily at your fingertips. Discover Davis in winter and make unforgettable memories.
