Comments
Comments: welllll we did it, first day of winter we got in the books for two years in a row. this was a slow going day for us as it was a pretty steep trail at times. This was about 11.6 miles for the round trip with the car spot. We had snowshoes on all the way til liberty springs trail. The osseo trail was amazing as others had snowshoed on it as well. Then once we got between the peaks postholers were about as we tried to smooth it over as much as possible with our group of 5. Then once we got to the liberty springs trail it was so packed down we threw on the spike and 2 bare booted it. Once you got down in the less elevation it was sloppy but snowshoes would not have helped the trail out as it is frozen postholes. The bike path had some snowmobiles on it and made that a smooth ride.
