Family Friendly Winter Hiking Trails

  Yes, there's still a lot to discover up in Door County during the winter months! Over the holiday break we were lucky enough to have a fresh blanket of snow on the ground and a couple of hiking trails on our list to complete during our trip up north. We were very excited when we realized that both trails were easy enough to pull our toddler in a sled throughout the hike.  Three Springs Nature Preserve The first trail on our list was  Three Springs Nature Preserve in Sister Bay (about 10 minutes from Beechwood Cottage ). The trail was extremely well marked and the trees were absolutely stunning with snow on them.  Along the trail you run into some old structures including an old barn. My son was very excited to take a peek inside. Just after the barn you end up at the picturesque springs. They have a few benches for people to sit down, relax and really take in its beauty.  Before going on this hike we knew there would be some nice photo opportunities but were pleasantly surprised
