SnowshoeingGreat!

So we climbed to the very top of Potato Hill with our snowshoes. It was quite the trip! Strenuous but absolutely gorgeous. The path was not very well marked but easy to follow any way. When we arrived on the “end” of the trail at Jack Rabbit Trail, potato hill’s highest point was visible and we decided to make the steep hike ALL the way to the top. And it was so worth it! Gorgeous views. Not any crowds even on a sunny Spring Break Saturday. We maybe saw 8 other people all day? We decided not to go around the loop on Hashbrown: climbing on to the top of potato hill and back down was about 5 miles total and enough for us. I would NOT recommend doing this when the wind is blowing since the trail is quite exposed. But on this sunny day, it was just marvelous.

Snowshoeing

We accidentally went the opposite way around the loop from what this trail said (we went counterclockwise), but were glad we did! It was nice to get the bigger incline done at the beginning and have a gradual descent the rest of the way. Also accidentally followed a snowmobile trail at the SE corner, but figured out our mistake and got back on track in not too long. Definitely worth it to take the road up to the viewpoint on Potato Hill, the highest point of the trek. Crunchy snow today, so just having crampons probably would have been fine instead of our snowshoes, but beautiful and sunny out!

Solid trail, could have used snowshoes on some of the parts but can do it in boot. Uphill heavy at the start and if you go to the peak you get a great view.
