Totally new and improved in the last couple of years. The start is super-wide and smooth, and can make a good out and back with even little kids. A little further in it starts to climb and switch a little more, but never too hard. A couple of longer board walk sections, lots of little bridges.

      reporter Pretty well packed from snowshoe traffic. One short spot after the bridge that's still a bit wet.

      Sections after the bridge are very swampy even in cold temperatures.

      Even with the below freezing temps, there are still spots on Stove that are flowing. Recommend using Hedonism, Dem Bones or coming up and over...

       Great ride with kids. 8yo and 11yo and we were up and down in about 40 mins. Nothing to crazy and my daughter says there were approx 26 little bridges.

       Easiest access climb to rest of the trails. Pairwith Eric's for a quickie, or head up Mushroon for more trail greatness.
