Ascent Trip ReportHeavy snowfall in the area as I arrived in the area. Accidentally located the wrong trailhead that led to someone's property. 2 mile snowshoe for good exercise I guess! Finally found the correct trailhead. Though it isn't a long hike distance-wise, it was very difficult in regards to the steep incline while snowshoeing on a trail that nobody had been on since about 5ft of snow. Finally made it to the top and was an easy hike back down using the prints I had already made.
