“Sample different types of terrain and enjoy great views on one of the longest snowshoe trails.”— Betty Anne Fequet
In this case, start opposite the entrance to Dogberry Lane and Snowshoe Trail C6 to take advantage of a relaxed descent from the highest point so that views can be totally appreciated. Early in the season, there is a small wet patch to cross over with a less than substantial bridge but deeper snow eliminates that obstacle.
The trail becomes very close to Games Trail in the Fox Trot area and then rises slightly to reach the turn off to E2 and Aspen Lookout. Soon after, the trail crosses Games Trail and then it is mostly flat with a just a bit of undulation right to the crossing of Fox Trot and on to the hill above the Games Trail quarry. Cross the quarry and follow an undulating trail right back to Rabbit Run by the old log cabin. The trail continues just a bit farther to join Brook Trail at the intersection with C3.
The trail is well sheltered in the intact areas of forest between Rabbit Run and Games Trail quarry and then again from Games Trail through Fox Trot and a bit beyond. There are also several aspen groves that provide protection but other areas that were previously burnt are quite exposed on a cold windy day. Fox Trot is often used as a shortcut back when there is some reason for not completing the entire route.
