This December, Active SWV is celebrating the season with 12 Days of Fitness! Follow along as we post a new fitness challenge for 12 days in December to stay active in the colder winter weather.

2. Winter Hiking
In truth, I think you could hike for all 12 days of fitness. The fresh air, absence of bugs and snakes, and empty trails always brings me back to a peaceful place even during the crazy holiday months. Some trail ideas found HERE.
