Default 2 weeks in April

Hi, after searching and searching I have to ask. I got two weeks off in April and I was looking a doing a one week hike almost anywhere in BC/AB or maybe California. However finding a good trail at this time of the year seems like impossible. So I need recommendation for a one week hiking trip that can involve mountains and I don't mind using my snow shoes in certain spots.

Collin, there can be some great hiking in southern Utah or northern Arizona during that time. There can still be weather issues but thats the case for many places in springtime. If you don't need alot of trees, the Grand Canyon is good.

Not sure exactly what you're looking for but perhaps the Stein Valley

Cheers!

Stein coming in from the lower end shouldn't be a problem snow wise based on this post:

You've gotten a couple of good suggestions already with the Lower Stein(we've been up there a few times for the Easter Weekend) and as Al pointed out, southern Utah/Arizona.

One you could do in Southern Utah, is an out n back version of Salt Creek, if solo, or if in a group arrange the shuttle to the trail head and do a through hike.(read up more info on it, here.

Also, in central WA. you could do the interesting Lake Chelan Lakeshore trail.
