Trail Report

A break in the wet weather with a dry Monday, as the precipitation stays south, allowing for the Fall trail grooming equipment to get out and do some “work”. The woods are spectacular right now with Fall color as many maples are at their peak. We are running a week or so behind on the color, most likely due to the warmer than average September and only two mornings of frost this Fall.  Overall the trails are looking great and we will continue working on the trails right up until the snow flies. The Detroit Lakes Nordic Ski team will be at Maplelag on the afternoons of October 25th and November 1st, clearing branches and twigs off the trails. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in helping out.

The trails are open for hiking, running, and biking but closed to motorized use and horse travel.
