Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: The lot in front of the gate is plowed out with easy room for a half dozen cars. The entrance to the lot is torn up crunchy snow-plow must have gone by one more time at the end of the storm on the road but not replowed the entrance. I scraped the bottom of my civic in the morning but it had softened in the afternoon, got out without a problem. Bring a shovel just in case if you have a low car.

Comments
Comments: Great day, colder but clear. Trail is totally broken out but considerably softer/deeper snow up above, I wouldn't wear microspikes on it yet. There were almost no postholes since everyone has worn snowshoes. We wore snowshoes for the entire trip. Saw only one other person.
