Any suggestions on the most scenic easy XC ski trails for the Tower and NE areas? I will get skies at Mammoth and have a car to drive to Silver City. Probably handle a 4 mile trail without a break. What is the recommended action if there is a bison near the trail while you are skiing?
The Lost Creek trail says it is 4 miles but it appears to end up on the Tower trail so you would have 4 miles back to your car. Plus the end of the trail is marked as "more difficult". What about going out until it gets hilly and than going back to the start? Says it is skier tracked. How much use would it get?
Someone said the Tower trail wasn't very scenic (just follows a road) but it does end at the Tower area. Can you walk down to see the falls once you get there? Says it is groomed.
The Bannock trail goes 2 miles to Silver City and I thought we could get lunch there before heading back. If we had time (and have the energy) we might go toward Cooke City a little ways before heading back. Says it is skier tracked. How much use would it get?
Thanks for any advice.
