Our volunteers have been doing a wonderful job of clearing and grooming the trails, through these windy storms and the trails are reported to be very good shape.
Because today was a very blustery day, don't be surprised if there is a bit of debris on the trails, in the morning. Keep in mind while walking among the alders, that the wind is predicted to pick up a bit Saturday afternoon.
The rain may result in some muddy areas, mostly in the southern portion, but this year has been a fairly dry year and the trails generally nice and firm.

Easter is here and the trillium are in bloom. Be sure to take a walk around the Trillium loop (the South Forest Loop) to see them in profusion.
Other bloomers reported this week are Bleeding hearts-between markers 13 and 16, False lily of the valley-on the South Forest loop, and Skunk cabbage-at lower Hawks pond.
Also of note spring fungi are making appearances.

Be sure to take advantage of the sun-breaks to enjoy the sights, song and smells of Spring on the Hansville Greenway.
