(Elk Camp, Wasatch Mountain State Park etc.)Trail Condition Post: As you all know we have record snow pack this year, and while the front country trails are drying out nicely the higher elevation trails are still mostly snow packed. Be aware that trail/road openings could be delayed depending on how quickly the snow melts. In 2011 when we had less snow the Alpine Loop Road did not open until the end of June. Also keep in mind that the trails are going to be far more vulnerable this year and that adhering to the wet trail closure when it is in effect, and avoiding wet trails in general will be of utmost importance. All use types can cause trail damage if the trails are too saturated. This time of year conditions are continually changing. Be willing to turn back or change your plans if conditions are not right. See attached pictures for trail conditions on the Pine Hollow trail and Mill Canyon trail as of the 22nd.
