Comments
Comments: Faulkner Trail from Mountain Avenue to the first viewpoint was very well packed. I wore snowshoes, but the trail has been well packed by bareboots. Above the viewpoint, not as much use, but still bootable. The carriage road at the top of South Peak was groomed. I did not venture to North Peak (highpoint).

I hope to return to this trail without snow, as it looks absolutely amazing with all sorts of rock work. Very gradual up to the first viewpoint with many gradual switchbacks.

Nice sunrise on the way to skiing.
