Details

The trail is mostly in trees with occasional views of surrounding ridges UNTIL we get to approx. 3.5 miles.  At this point there is a very nice open area where we will break for lunch and enjoy some beautiful views of Sawtooth Mountain and other nearby peaks.  



Snowshoes will be necessary as there is a lot of snow on the trail.  Although the elevation gain total is approx 1000 feet, the trail has large sections of gentle rolling terrain.  




Notes

Please advise the leader of any medical conditions you have prior to the trip via email or text.

 

There will be an optional post-snowshoe stop at the Wondervu Cafe Mexican restaurant located at 33492 Coal Creek Canyon Drive.  Carpools will be arranged accordingly.
