Though the parking area wasn't snow plowed, I was able to park on the side of the road and access the trail. Once on it was really well marked with frequent signs and red trailblazers panted on the trees. Decently steep, it was a great workout for snowshoeing. There had been a really big snow about a week ago and my tracks were the first on the trail. About .3 from the summit there were loads of fresh moose tracks, so I turned around to play it safe since I had my dog off leash with me. Snowmobilers were close by but on different trails so I didn't come across them at all even though I could hear them.
