DATE: April 19, 2009
RT TIME: 3.5 hours
CONDITIONS: snow in the canyons, sunny
HIKERS: Amy, James

AMY'S NOTES: A beautiful Sunday afternoon hike! We started from the mouth of the canyon where we parked the car, walked up the road, and began the loop at the upper trailhead. A few firsts on this one - first time actually completing the entire loop, first time in winter, and first time in the lower canyon. There is still a lot of snow in Maple Canyon. After some bushwacking, traversing, route finding, and general meandering we returned with soaked shoes and pants. Why do I never put on gaiters? I am now an official 4 season Maple Canyon fan.
