Radmila wanted to take the kids up north to see some snow, so thanks to the magic of the HAZ forum, I found this spot. We parked at the end of FR149 just off 260. The roads are closed due to the snow, so we just hiked up the road. At the junction with the Sardine Trail #536, I checked the trail there to Willow Springs Lake. It was pretty much impassable due to the snow, at least for little kids. so we continued westward on the Sardine Trail, which had been ridden on by some snowmobiles, making it walkable. At times we would break through the snow knee deep. We took the Sardine Trail up to Lake 3 and followed another snowmobile "trail" out to the edge of the lake, which was hard to tell where it was because of all the snow.
At the junction of FR149 and the Sardine Trail we stopped and had lunch and Radmila and Natasha made a snowwoman. After lunch the kids played a little in the snow before we hiked further up the trail to Lake 3 and then back to the car.
The total distance was only 1.5 miles, but after what I put the kids through last week on the Geronimo Cave Trail in the Supes, it was best to make this hike much easier and laid back.
