We are used to hiking in the morning hours but as fall arrives the evening temperatures are so pleasant it makes sense to get out in the evenings. We started hiking the lower trail from the Green Pond trail head on the Snowbasin connecting road at about 5:15 p.m. There were a few folks at the start of the trial, but after the first 500 feet we were by ourselves the rest of the hike. The maples were in fine form! Get out and live.
