    A really great trail. I just love it in the off season when the crowds are mostly gone. Right now the trail is mostly snow and some icy sections but well traveled and easy to follow. Once you’re into the upper basin skis or snowshoes are needed - I was postholing with every step! I was lucky enough to run across coyotes and mountain goats on this trip. Only a few other people on the trail.
