Early season hiking woes

Filed under: Spring — montucky @ 8:45 pm

On my way this morning to see if a hike to Terrace Lake might be possible I encountered a seasonal road closure a few miles short of the trail head that I hadn’t thought about: closed until June 15 for protection of Grizzly bears. Hiking the extra few miles would not have been too bad, but without knowing the trail status after that, maybe not so good; later perhaps.

While in the neighborhood, a drive to the Four Lakes trail head would be good. Most of the snow was gone from the road and I made it to the trail head OK, but the trails were still snow covered, it was too late by then to start out, and I didn’t have snow shoes with me. Maybe next week if I get up there about daylight…
