It is a balmy 30 degrees this morning. The wind is blowing and the fog has made itself at home. It rained yesterday with a mix of sleet and snow. Luckily, it did not stick. The high yesterday was 36. The trails are all clear of ice and snow. Trillium Gap trail is open, but only from the Rainbow Falls Trailhead. You MUST park at the Rainbow Fall trailhead parking lot and hike the connector trail to the Trillium trail. As of now, all of the trails are in good shape. You will not need ice walkers of any kind. I think I see a nap in my future, and I don't think it will be in the hammock today.
