The snow conditions look good for this Saturday! We'll hike the Lake Trail and Salt Run Trail at a about 3 mph for a total of about 4.5 miles. The Lake Trail is a fairly easy one... and Salt Run is rated by the NPS as moderate to difficult. So we'll have an easy warm up doing half of the Lake Trail before reaching Salt Run... and a cool down with the remaining half of the Lake Trail afterward.
If you or your kids prefer :-), you can sled or X/C ski too. Kendall Lake has a few nice snow hills, and they rent X/C skis. Then, a snack at the Winking Lizard in Peninsula at about noon.
Let's meet at the Kendall Lake Shelter. The parking lot is located on the south side of Truxell Rd. (Kendall Park Rd) that is south of Rte. 303, and runs between Akron-Peninsula Rd. and Akron-Cleveland Rd. in Peninsula. The park signs at the road indicate the entrance drives for each shelter area.
In case you arrive after we've started hiking and would like to catch up, we'll be traveling counter-clockwise starting with the Lake Trail from the shelter house.

See you there!
