This warm weather is giving me the hiking bug! Still looks pretty snowy up there from here on the high plains. Anyone have any trail reports yet?

No first hand reports, but friends have said the low elevation trails (Moraine Park, Upper Beaver Meadows, Deer Mountain, parts of the Twin Owls Loop) are pretty clear (or at least hikable for the most part) without snowshoes). Let us know what you hear and find out there!

We did Cub Lake a week and a half ago. Mostly dry with a couple of slick snowy spots of around 30 feet long. Pretty easy to do in boots. Most of the other lower hikes were free of snow. Above Bear Lake we either used spikes or snow shoes.
