Activities: Hike/Snowshoe Big Springs trails - 3 mile loop. Started north of parking lot and crossed small bridge and headed west through the woods. You get to a meadow in about 15-20 min. Then continued on, through the woods until about 1.5 miles where the trail meets the road. Great place to turn around and make it a loop or you can continue on either trail for more miles. This is where we stopped for hot cocoa/tea and soup, then turned around and came back through either the road or tree trail back. All Trails Trip Report
