Big time wind and rain on Tuesday with 1″ of rainfall from 12 noon Monday to 12 noon Tuesday. Rain forecasted to change to snow later tonight. Check back for possible snow photos!! The wet and cooler weather coming on the heels of nice weekend including an incredible Friday that saw sunshine and upper 50 temps and no wind. Rainfall light on Sunday and Monday mornings and very welcomed after dry conditions past 3-4 weeks. A great weekend to be in the woods hiking and biking. Looks to be wet the next few days with chances for the first snow of the year! All the leaves are down (early this year) after the peak of fall color the end of September. The trails are in excellent shape and ready for snow. This Fall we have been busy mowing and blowing leaves off on the ski trails and clearing deadfall and also making great progress on the new mountain bike trail near twin lakes. The trail is completed and open for riding.
The trails are open for mountain biking, hiking, and trail running throughout the fall until the snow flies. The trails are closed to horses and motorized use. There is no charge to use the trails. 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. The advanced loop is around 7.4 miles, taking 40 min to 1.5 hrs to complete. We also have a new mountain bike trail near twin lakes. Follow the twin lakes ski trail and look for the mountain bike trail signs. The trail is about 3 miles and takes 20-30 minutes to complete. Please park in the parking lot by the first freight house as you enter the Maplelag property. The other mowed ski trails are open for riding as well. Enjoy!
