Heavy rains wash out crossing


The heavy rains that came through on Friday May 15 washed out the concrete cylinder crossing on Happy Jack's trail. The trail volunteers have been repairing this section as it washes out after heavy rains, but don't have a permanent fix for it . The trail volunteers are working on a different solution to fix the problem.
Please be cautious on the trail system after weather events. Mother Nature is in charge out there.

Spring has sprung

Spring time is upon us and the trails are just beautiful right now. The vegetation is starting to fill out all over the trail system which also means that in a few weeks we will probably need to get the string trimmers out and trim back the tall grass to keep the trails open for hiking and biking. These trails are created and maintained by a 100% volunteer effort. If you enjoy these trails and have the desire to give back some of your enjoyment in volunteer labor then please send an email to the Volunteer Coordinator via the link on the right hand side of this blog.

We appear to have a pair of owls living in the area this year. There have been several sightings and some photos of them. What a neat sight to see!
