|Lost and Found:
||The Red Hill Trail tends to be one of the first snow free mountain trails in the Lakes Region and this year is no exception.|
The first mile and a quarter of the trail is mostly snow free with just a few minor patches of ice. The top half mile is pretty close to 50/50 covered with low angle monorail or soft blue ice and some mud.
I barebooted this afternoon with no issues. Some may want to carry light traction if it's below freezing.
No wildflowers in bloom yet, but it may not be long before trailing arbutus comes out.
