Comments: Here ye! Here ye! Do you enjoy hiking on trails that resemble rivers? Do you LOVE having wet feet? That every rock is questionable if its coated in ice? Do you love Rocky Branch? I see you nodding in the back there you sick individual! Sir, yes you Sir, dont be ashamed to admit it - are going to absolutely love the current state of Mount Garfield Trail! Come one, come all for some delightful type 2 fun. But hurry, because like every terrible television ad, this offer wont last!

A fine day of wet feet fun. Started early in driving snow down low. Per usual, the trail is more or less a flowing river for the vast majority of the trip. Snowshoes would have been no help, or would spikes. Too much water. We bare booted car to car. Opted to use the snomobile bridges. Found it odd to see people wading through the rivers so early. I guess AllTrails does't have 'all' the trails on it. Sun came out when we got done at about noon, we atleast avoided all the snow bombs
