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.
