Swansea Mountain

Update May, 2023

​​The Swansea hiking trails are virtually free of snow, so now is the time to start training for the hiking season.  Swansea is always the first to free itself of winter's embrace where the last push from the upper parking lot is the last place you may find snow.  There are a few trees down but nothing that will cause any problems, so get out there and get that first quad-burn over with.

The Pasqueflowers or Crocuses are out, so watch for them on your hike.  You will also start to see some Fairyslippers (Calypso Orchid) in shaded areas on north facing slopes.
