Winter is a great time to enjoy the slower, quieter side of Shawnee Forest country. The cooler temperatures mean no bugs and the trees are bare, allowing you to see much further into the forests. Bluffs hidden behind the summer foliage emerge dramatically into sight.
Hiking is available year-round, and if you have visited in another season, winter can offer a very different experience. The weather is generally mild, and you can pretty much have the trails all to yourself. Enjoy a peacefulness that only winter can provide.
The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail has adjusted winter time hours, but you can still pick up your favorite wines and cozy up by the fire. Curl up on the couch with a nice warm blanket just enjoying some down time.
