Trail Maintenance Notes

Comments
Comments: An absolutely perfect day to hike. Conditions could not have been any better. Blue sky, NO wind, cold-ish, but very doable temps. Trail is packed perfectly. We used snowshoes the entire time, did see a few with just spikes. The snow is still soft enough that snowshoes are still best at this point. Great views from both peaks. A must-do winter hike!
