Photos of Lewis and Clark National Forest Nature Trips Trails

First, according to the posted signs and brochure/map, dogs are not allowed on the snowshoe or xc skiing trails. That was a bummer. I'll call the Ranger Station to verify if trail association has the authority to say no dogs, being this is National Forest. The other folks using the trail said that they have seen dogs there before. hmm.
Tail makers were frequent. Intersections had easy to read maps. My wife and kids enjoyed the packed, narrow trail with powder on the sides should you want to use the full ability of your snowshoes. Wind was not an issue on the trails, though the days was forecasted as +20.
I looked at Showdown Ski Area's website to view real-time web cams and to get an idea of snow conditions.
