    Success Pond Road

    How soon is Success Pond Road passable after it snows? I didn't get out there in December and am hoping to do Goose Eye via the Goose Eye Trail this Saturday. I know it'll be a lot of trail breaking but my concern is whether the road will be passable or not.

    Thanks in advance for the help!!
    A quote that will probably be stuck in my head forever came from a backpacking trip in 2011. The group consensus was ".2 miles...how bad could it be?" We laughed about that later.

    Took a ride up a short time ago..it had not been plowed from yesterday's snow, but we got maybe 4-6 inches...I was able to drive to trailhead in my Tacoma P U...had to use 4 wheel drive to get up the first hill on the way in and out, other than that made it easy...I have some time later and will see if any plowing has taken place...

    Thanks for checking!! I decided to stay home because I'm coming down with a cold or flu. Breaking trail to Goose Eye would surely do me in.

    I'll be heading out there in March for sure. If there's been a lot of snow before I do the hike, I'll check in with you. The info is much appreciated!!
