Hiking at Yankee Springs

Went on a winter hike at Yankee Springs over the weekend.  It is in central Michigan near Hastings, a large state park with a number of lakes inside.  They have all sorts of activities available including mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing cross country skiing, and more.  I was quite impressed with the park.  Many more hills and larger ones than I expected.  Worth the trip if you have a chance.  Also a much larger park than I remembered, plenty of space to get lost in.  Click here for a map or see below.  We hiked for about two hours and got a pretty solid workout, moving fast.  Saw the “devil’s soupbowl” which is a huge pit created by glaciers and climbed Grave’s peak, the highest point in the park.  We spent the night at a B&B called Androunie House in Hastings – loved it, delicious breakfast and very friendly hosts.
