With horses on this trail during nicer weather, it can be an unpleasant mud pit. The cold weather and snow turned away all visitors, but a few walkers and some dogs. It left us a nice trail with a super walk in the woods. At the end of the day, the combination of snow on the ground and overcast skies left a quiet glow as we finished our adventure. We missed the hide near the chimney, but had a good day hunting caches in heavy snow cover.
