Snow on trail
On the trail
The weather was sunny and a little cold, but great for the hike. The bit of mud and snow on the trail was not a problem. However, we could not find the creek crossing at the 1 mile mark. Other people were running into the same problem. It was not obvious where to cross, so we turned back. It would have been awesome if we could have kept going, but with little kids, we were not about to take chances to get across the creek.
Mud and snow made it a little slippery, but not too bad.
