Really fun! Counterclockwise is hard but fun

Went today in the middle on some snow and fog but no wind at all. The trail is as challenging but has beautiful continuous rollers that allow for effort and rest alike. Bring water, your favorite “victory” drink and snacks as this will test your endurance if the snow is deep. Love it!

I'm out of shape, in my mid-30s, and did the 1B loop in about 4.5 hours. Solitude, beauty, challenge, photo ops. Great fun.

It doesn't seem like 1A or 1B is accurately represented on AllTrails, at the moment.

Was a great loop: so much amazing powder! counterclockwise is definitely harder ;)

Beautiful hike with enough ups and downs to make it interesting! I should have followed the advice that I read on several reviews of this trail and gone clockwise, but alas, I failed to listen and went counter! There is a rather large incline to get up to the meadows and I’m certain it would have been easier coming down than going up. No worries, though, either way is beautiful!

Definitely do it clockwise.

Great snowshoe hike. To catch it clockwise you have to have sharp eyes at the beginning of the trail. Turn left at a small Hill where you'll see tracks. Otherwise you're taking the more difficult counterclockwise route. Took us three hours at an easy pace on the steeper route.

We hiked counterclockwise from parking area. There is no trail to speak of since it primarily a x-country ski trail. It is marked periodically with blue diamonds nailed to the trees about 12' up. Use this app to keep you on track or you will get lost. The blue diamonds will give you assurance. The first mile is uphill either side with a nice hike along the meadows on top. Uneven terrain most the way. Short pants not recommended due to amount of knee high vegetation.

Just finished 1A today, massive amount of snow up there. It's alot better going clockwise as the climbs are broken up vs. the long up hill going counter. Just a perfect snow shoeing and beginner Xcountry track, as the hills are mostly gentle.

This trail should not be hiked by novices. The scenery was beautiful and the hiking was fairly easy for the first 2 miles. After that the trail was so overgrown that we lost the trail and after leaving the wooded area we no longer saw the blue diamond markers that marked the trail. Thanks to the satellite map of this App we were able to find our way back to the highway. This 3.5 mile hike turned out to be a 4 mile hike with a couple of very steep climbs and untraveled wilderness. We made it back safely and we were very happy to see the main road back to our vehicle.
Thanks for the great App
