Overview

This is featured as a winter day trip with a steady ascent from the parking lot to a shelter on top of Hunter Mountain and back but you can also stay in the shelter overnight or even do this as a nice run. Enjoy rewarding vistas from the top of Hunter Mountain.

Need to Know

In winter snowshoes are recommended. At four and a half miles round trip, you should plan accordingly with enough water and food/snacks.

Description

This is a fantastic trail in a winter wonderland. In the snowy winter months, the trail is broken in for you by the rangers so you could use winter boots but I would highly recommend bringing snowshoes with you (if conditions apply).

Year round however, there are fantastic views along the way and very rewarding vistas from the top. On the way back there are several stretches that can be sleded down carefully. The area is lots of fun and a great workout for the whole family.
