We thoroughly enjoyed our snowshoe hike along the mining road, but we only went as far as tree line due to weather coming in. We were the only ones on snowshoes, all other tracks were from skis and boards, winding off the trail through the woods. Beautiful views. Protected from the wind while below tree line. Parking was a bit difficult as the trail head is off a residential street. Moderate difficulty is accurate. Slow steady uphill climb.

Hiked Santa Fe Peak. Rated it as moderate as it's a pretty relentless upward path along an old mining road. You pass some long-abandoned mining shed, chutes and other structures along the way. The wildflowers were beautiful, as were the views from the saddles and the summit - especially to views of Torrey's and Gray's. Very light traffic - saw just a handful of other hikers.
