Trail Report

Off and on rain showers this morning accentuating the sights, sounds and smells in the woods.  The warm and early Spring has continues to bring the forest to life for the next season. More wildflowers, underbrush and tree blossoms coming to fruition this week. The loons, swans, geese and return of migratory birds sounds through the woods. Riding on the mountain bike course this week has been been pretty much perfect, thanks to dry conditions and having the short notice race “buff” out the course. Rain Thursday and Friday making conditions soft and muddy again.  Walking through the woods and what not it looks more like the middle third week of May instead of the last week of April. Hard to believe two years ago we were still skiing on record snowfall in April!!

The trails are open for mountain biking, hiking and trail running throughout the Spring and Summer. The trails are closed to horses and motorized use. There is no charge to use the trails and services are limited in the main lodge. The mtb course starts near the Great Northern Cabin and is marked for beginners to advanced riders. Follow the white signs with black arrows. The singletrack sections are labeled easier or more difficult/advanced. Rain forecasted the next few days might make for soft conditions but the course remains open.
