This is a wonderful trail for snowshoers of all tastes. Like to ’shoe where there are great panoramic vistas of mountain peaks? No problem. Like trails with pretty local scenery? This one has some of the finest subalpine meadows and forests in the country, all blanketed in the deepest snow found in Washington. Want to watch other recreationists play? Snowboarders and telemark skiers love this trail, with its many open slopes on which they can practice their turns. Looking for a chance to see wild-life? In addition to the wide variety of avian life- from camp-robber and Stellar’s jays to ravens and red-tailed hawks-snowshoe hares, red foxes, and a variety of small, scurrying beasts inhabit the forest fringes.
