Snowshoed up to the peak of the pass - more like 11,000 ft elevation... breathtaking views, both literally and figuratively. A New Englander born and raised at sea level (!), this hike is not for the faint of heart. Don't be fooled by its "easy" rating... maybe easy in spring but with snow it's quite a great workout! having poles will help as some of the inclines are straight up.

Great trail! Very tough in the winter late spring.
