Story

The trail begins at the Cyprus ski hill parking lot. You have to get a hiking pass from the ticket booth but it’s free.

There was snow on the ground but not enough that snow shoes were required. Micro spikes would have been nice for some of the steeper sections.

About halfway to St. Marks, we took a small detour to the left for a lookout.

As we continued we got a view of ‘The Lions’. I would like try to hike them once the snow melts in the spring.

Once we reached St. Marks we took some photos of the view at the top and then had some lunch which we shared with some very friendly birds.
