After a beautiful start to April with warm and dry weather, rain moving in on Wednesday with almost 1.5″ of much welcomed precipitation the rest of the week. Dry and seasonal on the weekend. Rain bringing the moss to life on the ski trails. Not much sign of other greening, still early April!
Ice off the area lakes April 3rd. True to form, the loons returned. The lake is busy with waterfowl enjoying the solitude before summer lake activity.
We are starting to work on the trails, clearing deadfall and opening up the mountain bike trails. We have select mountain bike trails now open and will open additional trail, weather permitting. This spring we will be planting trees and clearing on the trails along with regular forest management. The Maplelag trails are closed to horse traffic and motorized vehicles.
