Join us on a hike in the beautiful George H Crosby Manitou State Park. This adventure will begin with a half mile hike to the park entrance road until we reach Benson Lake. Once at Benson Lake, the trail loops and takes you on a 1-mile walk through scenic spruce and cedar groves. When the snow is super deep and fluffy we will take out the snowshoes and float on top! Wildlife spotting alert: This is a rugged, wilderness park where bears, wolves, moose, deer, and grouse share the trails with hikers! There are also plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the scenery of Benson Lake. The total trip distance is 2 miles and considered easy to moderate in difficulty.
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate
