  • Mileage: 5.2 mi

Let's plan to meet at  exit 20 off I-90 with plans to depart that location NLT 4:30pm. We can car pool from that location too.  

Bring snowshoes and microspikes, we will decided at the TH what we need to carry. I doubt either are needed but I have used snowshoes on the snow covered rocks to keep from post holing thru the rock gaps.  The spikes may help coming down the trail if it has any hard packed snow.  I anticipate being back to the cars about the time it is getting dark, but headlamp is a critical element, along with ice ax and helmet.
