Even though staying inside with a hot cup of cocoa sounds delightful (let's admit, it is!), we should get outdoors this winter after a long year of quarantine or working from home. The cold air beckons us to suck it in and let it fill our lungs. Maclay Flat Nature Trail is an ideal winter getaway for bird watching or a quiet walk along the Bitterroot River. It's the perfect winter paradise to have a holiday photo session for those looming holiday cards or an ideal place of peace if Christmas shopping has your spirit worn out. Maclay Flat Nature Trail is dog friendly so long as they are leashed and polite. Bring your furry friend with you and enjoy what this season has brought to one of the most picturesque spots nearby.
