Comments
Comments: This was a tough hike today. The road walk adds quite a bit to this normally short hike. The snow on the trail was soft and deep and it was tiring to trudge through. There were plenty of steep sections near the top and it was a bit icy under the snow in this area. None of the main trails appeared to be broken out.
