    Wolf Trail always provides a good hiking experience and today was no exception. Some sections were muddy, but that is par for the course at this time of the year. Parking at the trailhead (P13) is often a problem, but there was plenty of room at 9am on a Thursday. By the time I got back the parking lot was nearly full. I took a brief detour onto an unofficial trail where I came upon an unmarked viewpoint. The weather was seasonable, about 6 degrees Celsius. COVID-19 restrictions were in effect, so the loop had to be traversed in a counter clockwise direction. That was fine, it’s my preferred direction anyway. I like a hard(ish) climb at the beginning of a hike rather than a tricky descent at the end.
