    North Foothills - Albuquerque

    Has anyone been to the North Foothills recently? are they still slushy and snowy?
    Thanks

    No Bueno.

    Just checked it out, really wet, muddy in many places. Much damage by bikes and hikers alike. Ironically, it is the hikers who are causing the most damage by walking around the mud/puddlle areas, widening the trails significantly. Bailed about a quarter through my planned loop.

    I'd give it at least a week of moderate weather. I probably won't venture out there for about 2 weeks.
