You should take this hike! Our guide was top notch! Knowledgeable, courteous of our time commitments, was mindful of our needs, and very engaging. She took us on a medium difficulty hike through a winter wonderland. Luckily she brought extra ice cleats and walking sticks. I wouldn’t have made it without them. We lucked out with a sunny day after a snowy one so I got a lot of frame worthy photos. Was the highlight of my trip!
