We arrived to LOJ with overcast skies and a light snow falling. In a group of three, I was the only one to use snowshoes. My friends did well with spikes. A well packed trail met us the entire way. Last mile it got steep. Only came across one area with a good amount of ice. The summit was covered in cloud with light snow continuing. No views today. It took about 2 hours to navigate up the last mile but only 25 to slide down. We had s good time.
So glad we discovered Hunters Creek! The dogs loved it just as much as we did. There is definitely a good amount of trails and we are already planning to go back next weekend. We are not avid hikers by any means so if you are kinda new to this I suggest snapping a picture of the map before you start your hike or use this app to record your hike so you don't get lost. I didn't think the trails were marked as clearly as they could be so you have to pay close attention. It's also very muddy right now so dress appropriately. Happy hiking!
As easy or hard as you would like to make it. Follow the Red Markers for a slightly easier hike to the waterfalls and the Blue for a nice challenging one. We started on the Blue and finished on the Red. I cut it short due to rain coming but it was a nice hike and nice scenery along the way. Definitely one to do!
