Snoquera Falls Loop

It's a mystery how long the trail is, or what the accumulated gain is: there is quite a discrepancy among descriptions and maps. All we know is it's over before you want it to be.

As we are heading into an early spring this year, we might get lucky and spot some trillium. For sure you'll smell the cedar and appreciate the western hemlocks. The waterfall probably won't give us its usual April roar, what with the "no snow" year we've had. Still it's a lovely way to spend an Easter Sunday.
