    Great hike Dave! My phone died so I didn't get accurate mileage... It stopped at 4 miles..... but the track picture finished oddly enough!

      The big slide at the end was the most fun...definitely worth climbing that steep hill.

    Great hike! I have been hiking in powder mills for years and saw a lot of trails I had never seen and a few I had forgotten too. Great pace and a great group. Thanks Dave and Ryan. Would love to know the mileage.

    David did a great job accommodating various levels of hiker abilities. The route was challenging with hills and loose snow, so the hike was a great workout!

    Most of the trails are well traveled, and clear, some areas will have deep snow for a short distance. I found poles helped the most, traction spikes can also be used, there are some steep ups, and downs, there is 1 rest area about 20 min from the start, and I would add 15min to the time, because of the conditions, and pace of the group. Bring something to drink, and I look forward in seeing you Sunday at 10am. Please note the different starting point, and parking lot.
