Hiking around Quincy Bog in the winter is fun! Recently we took a road trip to Plymouth, New Hampshire where we stayed at The Common Man Inn’s Tiny Cabins, and ventured up to the Ice Castles, and of course stopped for a hike at Quincy Bog, a place we like to visit in the summertime.

Before this hike, we’d only been to Quincy Bog during the summer months. We thought, a winter hike? Why not!

Quincy Bog Winter Walk

We grabbed our Yak Trax and took off on foot. Come along… Join us on our winter hike around Quincy Bog Natural Area in Rumney, New Hampshire. One of our favorite places for a wilderness walk in New England!

We met one fella coming out of the bog and told us to be careful, it was slippery and icy! I don’t think he had Yak Trax on, it wasn’t too bad…


As a matter of fact, it was a great hike.

We took it slow and even ran into a few other people also hiking around the bog. One of the great things about visiting during the winter is that you don’t really have to worry about tripping over roots! 😂 If you’ve been to Quincy Bog before, you know the ground is a little bit rooty – but not when there’s a foot of hard packed snow!

There’s not a ton to say about our hike, except you should be a little careful of the patchy ice, wear Yak Trax or some other boot spikes and for God’s sake if you bring your dog, pick up its crap.


Although you won’t find many roots, you must be careful as the snow along side the planked walkways can get deep! We also stumbled across a downed tree across the trail. It was frozen to the ground but was easy to navigate around.

There were not as many animals as we see during the summer (check that out here). It was a nice sunny day and the air was crisp but chilly. Our hand warmers and toe warmers really worked wonders!


Maybe the best thing is, you don’t have to keep your eyes peeled for bears!
