Comments: Logging roads to bushwack to logging roads to bushwack

Snow melting, 1st mile not bad but once you get to the first major water crossing, (I followed All Trails GPS track which I wouldn't do again with the snow melting), then snowshoes necessary. The way I went had me pass the 1.5 yellow sign for Wheelerville Road and took me to the second one for 2.5 miles, that mile in between with the GPS track was a solid bushwack, couldn't follow GPS track with water had to stay high off of track. Once I got to the 2.5 mile sign and started to climb I even postholed with snow shoes, very wet and about 2 feet up top. Sad to say when my tracks freeze, might be hard to go over but the logging road is wide so you can avoid. No other tracks but a moose! Great Day!
