Comments
Comments: Great early morning hike to Mt Isolation and very interesting going through the glades by headlamp before dawn. Overall the trails are in great shape and solid with what little snow we have. A few avoidable waterflows on the trail. The Engine Hill Bushwhack has a perfect track established which made for quick travel to Isolation Trail. Micros from start to finish but highly recommend packing the snowshoes as snow is much deeper if straying off trail.
I avoided the pointless double crossing by following established herdpath going by the first crossing. It was nice briefly chatting with another hiker on my way out.
