Trail Report

The snow from Sunday’s storm has melted off and the trails are starting to dry up. The ponds and sloughs are very high as a result of the excessive moisture this Fall, bringing the water tables to their most highest levels in recent years. Has been a beautiful week in the woods and we have enjoyed having up to 30 trumpeter swans swimming and flying over Little Sugarbush this week as well. On a still calm morning, it is quite fascinating to watch and listen to. Photos below from this past week.

Although we had a few mornings of temps near 20 during calm waters, no ice formed on the edges of the lakes. A few reeds getting frosted though.
