Comments
Comments: Most of this trail is used for snowmobiles in the winter. Due to the recent rains there is not much snow but there are some icy sections. Micro spikes were the perfect footwear for the day but you could possibly get by without any traction.
Once we got on the Turtleback Summit Trail where snowmobiles are not allowed, we were glad to see that someone had been up there awhile ago with snowshoes so it was all packed down.
No views with the heavy cloud cover today but it was still worth the little over 7 mile hike.
