Comments: All the trails have been snowshoed and are in great shape.. I’d still wear snowshoes tho.. Twinway up to South Twin has had NO traffic since the latest storm…where GRT goes west from the intersection with Gale River trail was 1 set of snowshoe tracks… needing Garfield for March, I thought about heading there after summiting Galehead… after letting Tracy (at home working) know I was headed to Garfield, I set out on the GRT… it quickly became apparent that this 1 set of snowshoe tracks wouldn’t be enough for me… I couldn’t match their stride! I’m 6’1” and this trailbreaker had to be AT LEAST 6’4”… had Matt/Jim J been out here? Or Ben that broke out S Hancock??? After about 1/4 mile I decided the 18+/-“ was too much for me solo.. (another msg to homebase with a change of plans)... it’ll be easier to just cruise up the Garfield trail… so if you think it’s broken out, be aware 1 set stops after 1/4 mile from the intersection of GRT and Gale River trail
