Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Quinttown road and Mousley br. Rd. were not bad at 8:00am so I drove to the summer parking. By noon, when I was leaving, the road softened up and was quite muddy. Some spots, I feared my Elantra would not get through. No problem though (except I could use a wash) I almost can't recommend this hike because of how the roads are becoming. However, there are residences so they must keep it open at least to residents.

Comments
Comments: There was no evidence that anyone had been up this trail lately. Breaking trail wasn't too bad as the snow compacted well under my snowshoes. Balling was a bit of a problem. trail was easy to follow. There is a reroute which is made confusing by the direction of the arrow. Just follow the yellow ribbons. The summit remained in the clouds so no views from tower.
