Often overlooked, this trail is overflowing with opportunities for snowshoers looking for solitude along a quiet forest path. The huge, old trees, abundant wildlife, and remarkable sylvan environment of this area, coupled with a general dearth of winter visitors, means this trail is an ideal retreat from the busy schedules of modern life.
This trail boasts no sweeping panoramas, no drop-dead gorgeous views of peaks, valleys, or rivers. Instead, there are endless small graces along the route--snow-draped ferns, ice-adorned lichens, cathedral-like stands of cedar and fir, tracks of birds and animals to identify, and usually plenty of the birds and animals who laid the tracks.
