I headed up to the Laurel Valley Parking area to check out trail conditions after the latest round of winter weather. A group is planning to run the Foothills Trail next weekend (possibly me too) so I thought it would be wise to cover a small portion of the trail and see how it looks.
The 5 mile stretch from the parking area to Virginia Hawkins Falls is in excellent condition. All of the snow and ice has melted and the trail was even dry. I could tell where recent maintenance had been performed as there were a few freshly cut trees beside the trail.
Everything is a "go" in my opinion, depending on how the weather holds up for the next six days.
Here are a few photos that I snapped...
