That's all folks!

These trip reports are close to 10 years old and with so many newer and better resources available, I've decided to let HockeyPuck's Hiking move to the cached servers of the internet archives.

I'd like to thank everyone for reading my trip reports and sharing your constructive feedback and positive comments.

See you on the trails and enjoy the next adventure, wherever it takes you.

DESCRIPTION: Access roads were marked pointing the way to Snow Fire tower however the road stopped and there weren't any signs or a kiosk confirming I was in the right place.  Continued along the jeep / ATV road 0.1 miles to a junction where the trail bears left over a wooden bridge.  Trail is wide but extrememly muddy all the way to the pond.  The firewardens trail head is a wooden sign with only an arrow marking the way.  Trail is overgrown with a plethora of downed trees.  Easy to follow.

Snow Mtn pond - Summit = 1.3 miles

Round trip - 6.3 miles
 
HIKING TIMES: 90 minute ascent, 60 minute descent

NOTES / COMMENTS:  Fire tower has fallen off the metal stand which remains at the summit.  Limited views from the summit unless you desired to climb the rickety ladder (I didn't).  A few outlooks along the trail offered great views.
