Hiking season has officially begun! And we are excited to finally hit the trails.
We decided to start with an easy hike and get back into the swing of things. We did a repeat hike, Mt. Willard. We know the terrain and what to expect.
Instead of repeating myself, you can find more about Mt. Willard, here, and the trail details.
However, for those hiking the trails, the current conditions range from dry, wet, mud, snow and ice. You get them all on this hike. So, be careful. You could use micro-spikes, if you want, towards the summit. We didn’t have them. We walked on the side of the trail and avoided the ice.
If it stays warm, all the snow and ice should be gone in about two weeks. Of course, that means mud and tons of it. Also, the water crossing may be a little tricky.
Here are some images from our hike.
For the first hike of the season this is a great trail. It was rather busy, if you want more solitude, I suggest skipping this trail.
