Some muddy parts on the Meadowlark section and definitely used spikes on Plymouth parts.

HikingGreat!

Gorgeous snowy hike with great views and a lot of pine trees. Most of the trail is covered in packed snow. I brought spikes but did okay with just my poles and hiking boots, though I would probably recommend the spikes because there are some steep downhill areas (and once that snow melts there will likely be ice underneath).

The loops didn’t have much ice or snow, so they were fine. The iciest part was the connector trail between the two loops. But definitely suggest spikes or poles or both

01/23/21 Such a gorgeous day and hike. Half the trail is iceless but muddy. As you get toward the higher parts it turns to winter and ice/snow quickly. Spikes are super recommended and make the trek that much easier. Group I was with didn’t have them and they were slippy sliding all over the place. Quite entertaining. I was leisurely following behind with my lovely yaktraxs.

Lots of ice on the trail and coming down it was a little treacherous. Recommend spikes and or poles for another couple weeks.

This was a great hike in the foothills with beautiful views of the prairie. It was pretty crowded though for a weekday. Embarrassingly, I slipped and fell on some ice, so bring whatever equipment you may need to make it through in the winter. Fortunately, no one saw me fall.

Great lollipop hike today on Meadow to Plymouth Creek. Spikes and poles were helpful on snowy/icy sections. Lots of different terrain including open, woods and desert like. Some mud on the return and didn't enjoy looking into the massive homes.

Nice trail though very narrow and social distancing not easily manageable. About 25% of the hikers did not have masks on. Loved hiking in the forested part of the trail especially the loop on Plymouth Mountain Trail. Mostly packed snow but turned to dirt trail in parts. A bit of mud and some ice here and there. Beautiful views and lovely forest setting. Climbed to about 7,100 feet plus.

Overall the hike is cool. Trail starting off is narrow so makes social distancing impossible. Lots of people not wearing masks. Took Plymouth Creek back for a change of scenery.
