* Most of the route is frequented by atv and snow machines but we will check out less used paths—at the time of writing these had up to a meter of snow.  Depending upon weather and conditions, alternate footwear, possibly hikers with ice-creepers, might be preferable.  Dress appropriately.   If the forecast is bad, the outing may be rescheduled.
