Trails along the top in 4-10 inches of snow, several new trees have fallen across the trail, but very peaceful.
The trail is lovely, snaking up Squak Mountain through lush green mossy forests. The only caveat is that the summit itself is nothing to write home about - it's home to a rather large cell-phone antenna array and not much of a view. But it's a small thing to complain about, as the trails themselves are really beautiful, not to mention clean, clearly marked, and well-maintained.
Beautiful wilderness, close to town! Some of the south side trails are a bit "horsey" but there are plenty of narrow, winding routes that are closed to them, too.
