  • Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,000 ft

4:30pm, Highpoint (I-90, Exit 20, just past the stop sign)

A few patches of snow to deal with, but otherwise the trail is mostly clear.  Faster than moderate pace with just a few breaks in order to get back at a reasonable time (I estimate 4 1/2 hours roundtrip)  Bring headlamps.
