Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Was able to get up to an active log landing on Canyon about 4+ miles off 16. Road is unnamed, but if you search "Langtown Mill" on google maps, you'll see a road go over Dead River, then Y immediately, near the Baker River, go right. From there follow the main plowed road until it splits and heads downhill, from there head uphill. You should see a sign for "CANYON TRAIL"

Comments: Started my day here and got myself in a good spot. Thanks to P,S,S & M for laying a great line. Lightning quick on the snomobile trails, but started to soften up as soon as the sun came out. Again, despite driving by a "TRAIL CLOSED" sign, snomobilers tried to keep going. They got stopped by a large drainage. After the log landing/turn out at the trail closure for sno-mo sign, the trail is intermittently and mostly post holed by selfish moose not wearing their dang snowshoes. It wasn't really too bad, mostly avoidable and not an ankle workout. Then again, this being the first hike of the day, I was young and full of hope. Tracks turned sharply upward at the yellow painted hornbeam(!!) stake for MH&T. From there it was a great solid track to follow. The hardest part of the hike was despite the sun out, it was a firehose of water melting off the trees, and multiple snow grenades. Out and back in a screaming time.
