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. _L7C0133 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. _L7C0147 _L7C0161-Edit _L7C0175 _L7C0206 About halfway to St. Marks, we took a small detour to the left for a lookout. _L7C0218 As we continued we got a view of 'The Lions'. I would like try to hike them once the snow melts in the spring. _L7C0230 _L7C0242 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. _L7C0266 _L7C0271-Edit _L7C0277-Edit _L7C0284 After lunch we made a snowman... _L7C0335 An angry snowman. _L7C0331-2
