Comments
Comments: I did an overnight trip with my brother, camping a ways up Stony Brook trail. We were packing down a couple inches of fresh wet/sticky snow (which froze well overnight). We also received a couple inches of fresh powder overnight. Lower sections could be done in spikes as its firm enough (for now) but we wore snowshoes car to car. Started out of camp on the later side and the trail had continued to be broken ahead of us (thanks). We got up towards the ridge and the tracks were already drifting in but easy enough to follow. Ran into Halli who is working on her single season winter, good luck, you're almost there! Carter-Moriah trail is broken, though the first section doesn't follow the true trail. It turns left prematurely and meets the trail shortly after. This could be however to avoid some sloping ledges, which we did traverse on the way out. The track from here is well defined, though the winds could drift it over. There is the usual bushwhack element to working your way through the evergreen so bring a hard shell. This was my second time taking this approach up Moriah and I defintely favor it over Carter-Moriah. It was a great day and we only saw one other hiker.
