Trail Report

Beautiful summer weather in place. Woods are lush and green and active as ever with wildlife. Although it has been a bit drier than “normal” we have received enough precipitation to keep things “green”. We have started mowing on the ski trails in full force, constantly clearing deadfall from any wind events and tuning on the mountain bike course weekly.

Wildflowers have been popping out nicely this spring and really exploded when we had hot and warm conditions late May and early June. Many sights and sounds of nature including the frogs, birds and waterfowl in one of the most active times of year for wildlife. Eagles hatching in the eagles nest near the western trails. This spring we also planted trees and clearing on the trails along as part of our regular forest management.

The mountain bike trails are open for riding. There are no services in the main lodge. Meal service and lodging closed at this time. The Maplelag trails are closed to horse travel and motorized vehicles.
