Info: The road St. Elmo is plowed. There's parking just east of St. Elmo. Arrive early if you want a place to park. Otherwise, you'll be parking further back on the road. On the way to St. Elmo, we passed the trailhead for Antero and did not see any trench or ski tracks. Our group of four broke trail (on snowshoes) up Poplar Gulch about 2.5 miles before we turned around. The snow was about knee deep, definitely a good workout. Even if we had the energy to reach the ridge, it looked loaded. This is a great snowshoe trail with moderate elevation gain.
