I loved this hike. It was pretty brutal because we didn't expect the snow which got deeper and deeper as we went along. We took this trail till it ended and then we made our way up to the summit of maple mountain. I think it was a round trip of about 10 miles and we started at 5:30am and got done at noon. The view with the fresh snowfall were incredible. The last mile had no trail and was a steep incline with a foot of snow which was the most brutal part. That one mile took us probably an hour and a half to climb but only 20 min to get down from it. Well worth the hike. We wish we had brought snowshoes.
