Big Springs Hike is fairly easy with little elevation gain. What I like about it is that you walk along a river which provides no end of entertainment for my now three year old Big E. The weather was so warm when we went I was tempted to not put him in snow pants but I’m glad I did. The sun was melting everything so bare spots became mud and the trail was still icy. The full hike is 1.8 miles to the Big Spring, the source of the flowing river you walk by. We just stayed on the bottom part of the trail since it stuck by the water. Big E loved throwing rocks into the water and trying to break the ice. Little g loved sleeping in the moby wrap. I loved being outside.
