Sometimes it’s nice to cut a switchback or two; to go where skiers and snowmobilers can’t; to work up a sweat on a cold day while enjoying spectacular local scenery and distant views. This trail offers all that. A road loops, bobs, and weaves its way to the top of the mountain, but snowshoers don’t need roads. There is enough open country on the side of the mountain that snowshoers can just point their shoes uphill and go, jumping onto the road when necessary to avoid particularly steep pitches or brambly clearcuts.
