Details

This trail starts steeply out of the parking lot, passing by Francie's Cabin.  If desired, we can stop by the cabin for a peek.  Continue up Crystal Creek to above treeline to enjoy the views and have lunch.  We will turn back and hike on Wheeler Trail, then left onto Spruce Creek for our exit.



Winter gear is required, which includes many extra layers to adjust for conditions and emergencies.  Be prepared to carry snowshoes AND microspikes.  Bring the 10 Essentials, including extra layers and gloves.



If you are new to snowshoeing or winter hiking, please call your leader about gear requirements.



Expect a final email on Sunday 11/10 about conditions and required gear.
