The May long weekend is almost upon us and with the recent sunny whether, you’ve done some hikes but are looking for something a bit more challenging. While the snow pack is quickly melting, there is still plenty of snow on the local mountains, creating dangerous conditions in the back-country.
The weather is starting to warm, the daylight hours are becoming warmer, and the urge to get outside has peaked. However, a lot of the higher elevation trails are still covered with snow, so what are some of the best hikes to do around this time of year?
While you may not find yourself climbing up a big mountain to take in an incredible panoramic view, there are still many great hiking trails accessible that offer a fun partial-day outing, great exercise, and incredible scenery.
