Comments
Comments: Trial had complete snow-cover with very firm conditions. I chose snowshoes for the entire trip. Off trail, snow was mainly supportive with snowshoes.

From the Isolation trail east of the junction with Davis Path I bushwhacked up to the bump just northeast of Isolation. Woods were initially open, but got very tight near the top and on the way across to Davis Path. On the way back from Isolation, I bushwhacked up to the highpoint of Rocky Branch Ridge and followed the ridge south over the south peak and down to the height of land on Rocky Branch. Woods were mainly open with the occasional tight section.
