Easy snowshoe up a gentle road great for a beginner.
Snow well packed (on road) and lakes frozen
visited lower and Mid lakes but didn't do the lookouts as poor visibility on this visit

Nice little walk along creek up to the Iron Horse Trail and Deception Crag climbing area. Good hike for little kids. ots of rocks, big old growth stumps and then the old train trestle at the end. Full meal deal in a mile.

Short trail to a popular rock climbing area just above, as well as below the John Wayne Pioneer trail. Not much for hiking, but the climbers seem to like it.

Easy snowshoe trail, I don't know why this is marked as hard, the grade is so easy.

When we started out the trail in the snow was pristine. It was a winter wonderland! We hiked between tall trees that where snow covered making some magical creatures.

This 2700' Elv. gain didn't seem like it at all...it was moderate all the way through. When we got closer to the top, about the last 1mile or so we came into some snow which I found to be fun to trek thru...once around the back side of the mountain....what a wonderful view into the valley below. We didn't make it out onto the "catwalk" becasue of the snow...I look forward to this hike again in late summer so that I for sure get out on the "catwalk"
