Here's an update hiking friends.
If you don't have XC skis, they can be rented at Chapin Forest which is approximately 10 minutes from Big Creek.
Here's a link to Chapin's website: http://www.lakemetroparks.com/programs/activities/pinelodgeskicenter.shtml#rental
We can meet in the Nature Center parking lot at 1pm.
Planning to serve snacks and beverages at my place next to the park around 4pm.
Think snow! (without any, this will be a traditional hike)
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
