Comments
Comments: Very nice snowshoe track from the trailhead to the N/S loop junction. Not as well consolidated and a bit messy ascending North and across the ridge to South. Some knee deep drifting and unconsolidated areas across the ridge. Some butt sliding tracks, some SS tracks, some boot prints descending South - overall smooth and softly consolidated. Saw a couple sets of bare boot prints the entire way but they didn’t appear to muck it up. It’s not a super packed highway but it’s a good track.

Now don’t go and rototill it!
