Not a snowshoe to be started at 12:45pm but we did. Made it up to the 5.5km point before we had to turn around. Worth the trip anyways.
Details: First two km are flat and suitable for any fitness level. Path is occasionally accompanied by a lovely stream. Pine beetle bark is peeling off of trees everywhere.
Next 6km are uphill and involve switchbacks. There are a few view points to the NorthWest but I couldn't tell you about the top - the last time I went it was windy and cold.
Trip Highlight - walking a few feet down the Pacific Crest Trail and dreaming...maybe the movie will suffice.
Snow was hard packed on trail and we only used microspikes. Snow changed to nice powder at 4km. Some water on trail causing snow balls under our feet.
Cachers: nice little night cache nearby ...
