Comments
Comments: The trail is perfect for running and sledding. Wore microspikes the entire way and ran most of the trail once I hit Mt. Starr King on the way up without feeling any risk of a potential wipeout. No views but the trees were incredibly beautiful. Was the second car in the lot at 8:15 am but it was full of cars by the time I returned three hours later.
