Looking down the Dearborn Trail
Route: Dearborn Trail
Primary day! The weather forecast had called for a mostly cloudy day with rain. Looking out the window all day, I didn't see as much as a cloud in the sky! Thus, I needed to get outside.
The actual parking lot for the Dearborn Trail hadn't been plowed in a few storms - however, there were places at the end of the road plowed enough for maybe half a dozen vehicles.
At 56 degrees, it was a warm day for January standards! As a result of the warm trend, significant portions of the trail were bare and very wet. Not only that, but the remaining slush and wet granular made for more challenging snowshoeing - uphill and down.
Arriving at the summit, much of the sky had been overtaken by clouds. Nonetheless, I was able to see a decent sunset.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 16 North to Route 153. Take Route 153 North to Hobbs Road (on the left, there will be a sharp curve with a schoolhouse monument). Hobbs Road will trun into a Class IV Road. Shortly after that warning, the parking lot is on the right. Dearborn Trail trailhead is at the back of the parking lot.
