Details

We will hike up the road to about the 4 mile marker and return. I was up there last Thursday and the road was snow covered but a trail was packed sufficiently to walk without snowshoes. I will be bring snowshoes in case the conditions have changed. Also be prepared for snow, wind and cold temperatures.

Notes

Bruce and I had a very beautiful day. We were able to hike part of the road but snowshoes were necessary going up. Coming down we used snowshoes only about 1/3 of the 4 miles.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
