Fagin's Hike (Ski-Snowshoe) of the week- Along White River

Issued: 2-4-2016

This is a snowshoe or ski (we skied) off of Hwy 410 just east of the town of Greenwater. This starts at low elevation, about 1900 feet so snow coverage is spotty first 1/8 to 1/4 mile but can ski after that. We also same snowshoe tracks. This is a mostly flat road with nice views of the West Fork  White River. It very-very slowly goes uphill.
