When to go
Dates can vary based on conditions
Bring an extra layer or even a small foam pad to use as an insulated seat. Trust us – when you reach the viewpoint at the end of the trail, you’ll want to stay a while!
It’s tempting to take up both sets of tracks, but they’re intended for two-way traffic.
