Here is a track recorded Feb 12. Please note, although the track does cover all the ground between Long Valley and the summit, because I did not turn on the GPS until I was well into the woods in Tamarack valley, the portion of the track which goes to the summit is incomplete. However, because I left it on and came back exactly the same way, that should not be a problem. On any GPS device with a visual display, you will see a line on the map which represents the track running all the way between Long Valley and the summit. I would not advise trying to convert the track to a route and following it though, because on the outbound journey, there are no track points until somewhere in Tamarack valley. But if you just look at the display and note your location relative to the line which represents the (mostly two-way) track, you should be fine.
Hope that makes sense!
Let me know if you have any problem opening or using this file.
