With all the snow Chumley suggested snowshoe around Willow Springs Lake. We started from the 260 and Young Road turn off. Parking options were none so we had to shovel out our own spot but good pre hike workout. Crossed the 260 and headed towards the lake following some power lines initially then cross county to one of the lake inlets. On the inlet we tested the ice to see how thick it was. Generally, between 1 and 3 inches thick but thinner near shoreline which made walking the edge more interesting. Followed the shoreline and sometimes on the ice over to the dam and then down the spillway. Below the spillway we followed the Willow Springs Creek about 1 mile before taking lunch break. The creek was very scenic but snow was deeper around 3 feet. After lunch hiked back to the dam but this time we went around the other side to finish out the lake loop. Found the mountain bike path at some point and followed that back to our original track. Fun day in the snow!!
