Looking up the road to Fort Mountain
Route: Access road, (Fort Mountain), access road
Plowed access road was plowed and barebootable. A little bit of ice on it, but generally enough of a grip to not pose a problem.
Venturing off the road is another story, though. One to two inches of snow are covered with a generally breakable crust...however there are random sections that are not breakable. As a result, without light traction, one can fall and go sliding very easily. I ended up putting on Microspikes to get back to the road from the southern view ledges.

Take a left onto Mountain View Road. Bear right at the next junction, then head around a left curve. The access road (no vehicles allowed) will be on the right shortly thereafter, with utility poles heading up it.
