Started at the back end of the trail and snowshoed to the suspension bridge at Black Shale Creek (about 2.5 miles, which took about 1.5 hours to get there snowshoeing one way) and back (about 5 miles round trip). We saw bear prints in the snow at the beginning, so definitely bring bear spray! Beautiful scenery throughout. The trail opens up a few times to see the mountains in the distance. The views at the bridge are absolutely beautiful, definitely worth it.
