"The route to the top of Sun Top is often groomed for cross-country skiers, but snowshoers will still enjoy this trek. After all, the views are just as spectacular, and the winter landscape just as pretty, even when the trail has been leveled for skiers. Just stick to the edges of the road to avoid tromping on skiers’ tracks, and take advantage of any opportunity to climb off the road and cross open meadows for maximum snowshoeing fun."
