My 2x4 Nissan frontier got stuck a little past the mileage sign on Halfmoon rd. Some guy in a sizable 4x4 got stuck several times pretty early in the trail. You can park at the winter parking lot or if you have a capable vehicle, you might make it a mile or two. The halfmoon trail has lots of snow past the distance sign. Snowshoes/skis advisable. We went all the way to the north halfmoon creek TH, about calf deep snow and some ice in places. The area was getting nailed by a storm as we were leaving. The forcast said something about 20 inches. There was lots of wind. Temps in the halfmoon area were in the thirties during the day dropping to the teens at night. For the three days we were there, the sun would only show for about thirty min before more clouds covered it up.
