Trail conditions in the Foothills are great presently, but it is getting warmer so bring plenty of water or plan on earlier outings....Streams still have plenty of water and although the wildflower season is coming to a close in the lower Foothills, shrubs like syringa and wild rose are in full bloom! Snow patches remain at our highest elevations, though they will be short-lived with the warmer temperatures. Ridge to Rivers trail crews are currently doing annual maintenance in the Dry and Shingle Creek drainages, and once completed there, they will be moving into the Eastside/Stack Rock area trails. Have a great weekend on the trails!
Please remember to be friendly out there - smile, say hello, slow down - take and live the Happy Trails Pledge!
