Comments: First a 'big' thanks to 'mtnlady' and her crew for the fantastic job breaking trail on Sunday and the great trip report - thank you. The trail is in great shape - please lets keep it that way, snowshoes!!! Parked at BB Rec. Area and followed x-country ski trail to the junction of Gale River Road, then short road walk to trail head - well packed from all of the snow machines. Gale River Trail, Garfield Ridge and Twinway well broken out, Frost Trail up to Galehead the same. Garfield Ridge Trail at junction with Gale River Trail (headed back to Garfield) was untouched as was Twinway from the summit of South Twin back towards Bondcliff Trail. A great day!
