It is therefore advisable to download the map or track for consultation in offline mode in order to frequently check the position with respect to the track. Since there is no basic path, some of the sections in the woods may vary over time and not correspond to those on the map. Use the signs posted on the trees as a reference for direction.

Equipment

Snowshoes and poles. Onion layered clothing. Once you reach the ridge it could be much colder and windier than the initial stretch in the woods.
