If your New Year’s resolutions include communing with nature and getting in shape consider taking a winter hike at one of the state’s most beautiful spots. Hiking improves cardio-respiratory fitness, builds muscles and bone density and lowers your risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. It also helps fight off depression and insomnia. Hiking also burns up to 370 calories an hour and you can do it with the family. So get out there; explore nature’s quiet winter to calm your soul and improve your health.
