Comments
Comments: Trail was broken to the upper. Junction with the Table Rock Trail. No one has broken the lower half of the loop. I broke trail from the upper junction to the summit, through 2-3 feet of powder which turned into wind sculpted drifts near the top. One slightly tricky bit with a big brown ice flow, but lots of helpful trees nearby. On the descent the snow became wet and sticky.
