Winter Activities around McCormick

Posted December 18, 2023

Searching for enjoyable ways to stay active with loved ones during this winter season? McCormick offers an excellent opportunity to remain connected to nature while embracing the winter weather. Here are some delightful options near McCormick to savor the winter memories you’ll make with loved ones this year amidst the stunning backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.

As of recently, It appears that individuals are growing more eager to learn how to ski or snowboard each year, which is a fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors! Discover nearby mountains like Hurricane Ridge in Port Angeles, Washington—perfect for beginners seeking a challenge and seasoned adventurers looking for excitement! Other skiing hotspots include The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass, just east of Seattle, or Crystal Mountain near Tacoma’s Point Defiance Park, where wind is just another part of the thrilling experience!

If you prefer a more leisurely mountain experience while enjoying the snow, cross-country skiing could be your perfect choice. Various Local paths and expansive trail systems offer diverse levels that provide more excitement than just downhill skiing. Meany Lodge near Eaton or Iron Horse State Park, opposite Mt Rainier National Park along Highway 101, are ideal spots. They host winter events, including clinics by expert instructors well-versed in the sport.

Taking a nature walk in winter is another wonderful activity that provides its own experience during the cold months. McCormick has over 8 miles of walking trails within the community that provide residents and visitors the opportunity to connect with nature right outside their backdoor. If you want to take a 10-minute drive, Coulter Creek Heritage Park provides a 2.7-mile loop with wonderful bird watching and is dog friendly.

For the entire family, head to McCormick Village Park for a few hours of fun on a winter day. The open area offers plenty: fenced-off dog parks where both big and small dogs can play; green spaces perfect for kids who need some running around while parents watch over them from afar (or even just letting your child roam alone); then there’s also an amazing walking trail that leads deep into trees–perfect if you’re looking for something more adventurous than simply taking walks along roadways!

McCormick’s master-planned community is in Port Orchard, Washington, which is just right across the Sound from Seattle. Learn more about what is close to McCormick on the location page.
