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
