Trail Report: Did this hike as a loop, up the traditional Hex Mountain trail and then down the snowmobile trails and roads to the south. Icy starting off, shifting to crusty with the occassional punch through as the day progressed. Brought along both snowshoes and microspikes, never felt like either were needed so some additional training weight is all. Have been carrying a whippet on my last few snow hikes and I'm kinda sold on it.
Early at the trailhead to beat the rush for a parking spot, wound up heading up around 7:30 am. As there have been reports of tickets left the snow-parks pass and NWFP on the dash (thinking the NWFP is the applicable one for this hike, but not 100% sure).
2,700 ft of gain, 11+ miles as a loop. Beautiful sunny day.
