Now that Lake County has received all of this snow—upwards of 10 inches in some areas—the kids are probably anxious to get out and play in it.

In fact, maybe some of the adults want to get out in the snow, too.

There are, of course, many sledding hills around northern Illinois to check out. Take a look at our map of local sledding hills.

Hikers, snowshoers and skiers may also want to check out the Lake County Forest Preserves' lighted hiking trails at Old School Forest Preserve in Libertyville or Lakewood Forest Preserve in Wauconda. The lighted trails are open until 9 p.m. daily through March 8. Old School Forest Preserve is located on St. Mary's Road just south of Route 176, while Lakewood is on the east side of Fairfield Road just south of Route 176.

The Lake County Forest Preserves also offer routed snowmobiling trails at places like Rollins Savanna Forest Preserve in Grayslake, located on Washington Street at Atkinson Road. Visit the forest preserves website for more information.
