Mid-week travel

Post by Eaglevu »

This is for the middle-o-week climbers & hikers...
What has the travel population been like, over the past year?
Have the crowd numbers been good for Tue/Wed/Thu?

Since the start of the pandemic, I have seen a lot more folks out & about, around my neighborhood and foothill parks. It's been hard to find good trailhead parking.
I have not been up into the backcountry, outside of the ski resorts, over the past year. I'm planning to do some Wednesday hikes around the Front Range summits, in the near future.

While at the height of COVID mid week didn't seem to matter and was still crowded, I'd think mid-week would start to be increasingly less crowded again as vaccinations widen, things open, stimulus is reduced disincentivizing people from staying home and people go back to work. I've seen that around here where 8-12 months ago Tues/Wed/Thurs was as busy as Saturday on trails with parking lots packed, now mid-week parking lots are very light.
