Cruddy roads couldn’t keep us away from this local gem. The trail is VERY well blazed in red-orange paint and orange diamonds nailed to trees. Signs at key junctions/ re-routes are excellent. This is a much cared for trail.
There was approximately 3 inches of fresh powder on the trail which was simple to traverse in our snowshoes. There was also a large headless snowman on the open slabs near the summit. I mean LARGE. Cool.
