Check in here for trail conditions and occasional observations of plants and animals.
Ski trail was groomed a few days ago. Trail is in good condition, as of today. There is little debris in the trail and no icy areas yet. Fox and deer tracks are all over, birds are gearing up their voices for spring despite the temperature. Today, Red-bellied and Hairy Woodpeckers were busy on the trees along with nuthatches and chickadees.
Ski trail is in very poor condition. Groomed track is non-existent. Frozen boot tracks and deer tracks make it difficult to ski, there are sticks and debris blown off the trees covering the trail. Raccoon tracks are visible along with fox scat along the trail.
Trails are still in fair condition. Leaves, twigs, and seeds stick to ski wax. As I skied by, I flushed up an American Robin from under the boardwalk today. White-tailed Deer are using the ski trail in the snow.
