Route: Red Hill Trail

About an inch of new snow overnight, but quickly melting as the temperature went above freezing around lunchtime. Ground generally not frozen, so new snow shouldn't be around much longer. A few small patches of snow/monorail/ice underneath (never needed light traction), but otherwise trail should be mostly snow free pretty quickly. Nearby trails may still have decent snowpack in places.

Noted a new (heard about it, but don't remember seeing it) blue blazed trail departing from the east side of the summit (presumably rejoining at the upper kiosk near the old foundation).

Lakes still ice covered, but some water is starting to show.
