I decided to make this my last hike of 2016. I did it in a snowstorm, with snowshoes. I managed about 8 miles before my legs had enough. This is a hardcore trail in the snow. What a wonderful trail to end out my hiking year!

Before you make this hike, do a bit of research. Study the map before driving to the trail head. There are rivers, streams, alpine lakes, mountains, and abundant wildlife to see on this hike. This would be a fantastic camping / hiking trail in fairer weather.

I plan to come back in the spring, and will be prepared to make this a two-day hike.
