A snowy ramble along the Cooper River. This walk terminates at Cooper Lake, which is also snowshoeable!
From the parking area at Salmon la Sac, hop onto the Cooper River trail, clearly marked (but with a little bit of exposure right at the beginning; keep an eye on kids in this area.
Walk along the the north side of the river through some lovely open forest, typical of what you might find in this part of the state. Note that unlike in summer, snowshoe routes are not always marked, and the footprints of someone who went before you do not always indicate the right way to go. Have a map with you just in case.
For four miles, the trail stays to the right of the river, and you enjoy some mild ups and downs along the way before arriving at a bridge over the outlet of Cooper Lake. Continue to the lake, or turn around the way you came. Don't be surprised to see other people at the lake -- you can drive to it.
