Itinerary:

2:30 PM - Snowshoe Jolley's Ranch Campground Loop

3:45 PM Snowshoe Camp Creer/White Barn Loop 

4:00 PM Sledding (optional)

Drive:   Jolly's Ranch parking lot, Hobble Creek Cyn - 10 min drive up canyon. Take a right at the fork in the road after the golf course.  (This snowshoe loop is also great for Cross Country Skiing). See large pavillion. Trail is east on flat wide road through woods. 

Activity:

Snowshoe Jolley's Ranch Campground Loop - 1.5 mi. round trip.

Camp Creer/White Barn Loop - 1 mi round trip, easy. Start by going under large Camp Creer sign at the base of the sledding hill (Walk to large pavillion, look west, see large "Camp Creer" ranch-style sign). Continue past bathrooms on left, straight ahead following path that leads you to creek and goes slightly left. Follow down to creek, cross creek on large rocks, up and out over some logs and there you are in the White Barn meadow (great for Cross Country Skiing). Romp around here and do perimeter/barn pics.

Sledding - See large pavillion from parking lot of Jolley's Ranch. Best sledding hill is to the immediate right or west of this pavillion, and right of the small shed.

Optional - Snowshoe up to water tower. 1 mi out and back. This is a steep cardio climb. See metal gate "no trespassing", up this flat road. (I spoke with Springville Parks & Rec, no trespassing is for vehicles/atvs/horses or vandalism. Ok for small group hiking). We didn't go all the way to water tower.
