We started at a big snowmobile parking area on 302. From there we followed V.A.S.T trails to the pass between Knox and Butterfield. Snowmobilers can be somewhat controversial in the hiking community but we bushwhackers like to follow their trails! The bushwhack up to Knox was through a nice hardwood forest and there was plenty of snow for snowshoes. We had a nice lunch break on Knox’s mostly open summit. Once back to the V.A.S.T trail we decided that one mountain was enough and Butterfield would be waiting for us on anther day.
