13 of coolest winter hiking destinations in Green Bay, Brown County

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.”

If you ever heard that Scandinavian saying, you know there’s no excuse for not putting on an extra layer or two or, OK, three, and getting outside to enjoy a Wisconsin winter in all of its snow-covered and sometimes bone-chilling beauty.

Brisk, fresh air, the crunch of snow under your feet and time out in nature during the quiet of January and February can be the ultimate unplug from the noise of social media, pandemic headlines and daily stress. Nobody does a mental health break like Mother Nature.

So get out your warmest socks, put on your boots, maybe grab the dog and bundle up for a hike — by day or by candlelight — at one of these scenic spots in Green Bay and Brown County. You might be surprised by what you see.
