Description: If you have ever driven to Springfield, IL, you have undoubtedly passed over Lake Springfield at some point.
While walking around Lincoln Memorial Garden, you get to view a good portion of Lake Springfield. A lot of the trails share a shoreline with the lake. So on top of a great hike, you get to view the beautiful lake.
I bet there are some beaches that provide access to swimming the lake. Just have to find them! Some day, some day….
