Description

From the top of Bachelor Gulch, find the snowshoe trail behind the outhouse and hike that out 500 ft till it takes you up a slight incline to the picnic spot for lovers and stoners. Take in the beautiful view and digest for a bit. If you plan on eating at the Alpine Club Yurt in Arrowhead, ski down this beautiful low angle Aspen glade run through the obvious open tree channels. Be sure not to drop off the sunny ridge as you may descend below the Yurt. From the Yurt, traverse hard right (take the cat trail) to get back to Pow Wow.
