The trail is 7.3 miles each way and has a 1600ft elevation gain on the way in. There are snowmobiles in the area, remember you hear them before they see you so be cautious. Do not depart any later than 9:00 am so that you will arive before it gets dark at the yurt. It takes about half a day on skis to get to the yurt.

Before heading out on this trail you'll need to be able to read maps or use GPS units.
