Pretty easy-going trail overall. Snow is minimal as of today and no patches of ice. It was relatively isolated out there. Very well marked trails, and maps at key locations. All in all, I'd rather explore more on snowshoes or skis than via hiking, but a peaceful little jaunt nonetheless.

Did a loop hike around swampy lakes. It's a very flat trail but the hut's were neat, there was a small creek for water and not many bugs today.

Took the Porcupine Loop trail for snowshoeing. It was spectacular. Signage was off so we missed the new warming hut, but the trip really was breathtaking. Get a map that shows the loop (and not just the main trail which is for cross country skiing) and your golden. This is supposed to be a heavily used area but we only bumped into 2-3 other parties for the whole thing. Not bad at all. Easy to get to, well groomed trail.

Pretty easy hike without a lot of elevation. Took around 1:45 to make the full 4 mile loop.

Started at this trail then to Phills and on into bend to red robin. A total of 22 miles. It started hilly but the down hill was awesome. The hilly part was short approx 2-3 miles mixed with some down hill.
