I haven't blogged much about this newish hiking hill of ours, although through spring and summer we took as many hikes as my schedule would allow. On this snowy day, after parking at the road-end parking area, we hiked past the last campsite, crawled over a metal bar in the closed and locked gate, and went around the snow-slippery cattle guard. Above the gate and cattle guard, the trail follows a variably passable old road that is only open to motorized traffic in summer and early fall.
