This is a good recovery hike after partying the night before at Q's. It is not a walk in the city park but it is an easy hike. You still need to be in good shape and if you have any physical conditions you may not be able to do the whole hike.
We will make it in two stages. Second one will be slightly more advanced. Trail system is easy to navigate in case somebody needs to turn back and find their way back to the parking lot.
We will probably not need snowshoes but microspikes are highly recommended .
