Trail Work

Just a quick note on trail conditions. Trails are muddy in all the usual places. There are particularly soggy patches on that stretch, west-side of Buck Lake (between Marker 12 and the bend north of marker 3) and the trails south of Lower Hawks Pond.

There will be a chainsaw crew removing downed trees between markers 6 and 9, tomorrow, Sunday, March 20, beginning at 10:00 am. It will be a good morning to detour around the northern half of the Trillium Loop for those heading to Lowers Hawks Pond from Buck Lake or visa versa.
Check out the map link on the right of this page.

The sun is shining! What a beautiful day for a walk in the woods.

It's been beautiful and clear, but oh so windy. There are branches and trees down, as one migh expect. While most are small and easy to step over, there is a large tree completely blocking the trail 100 paces south of trail post 6 on the way to post 9.

A volunteer crew will be out to clear it...probably Saturday, but for the time being, those walking from Buck Lake Park or points north, to Lower Hawks pond will want to take a right turn at post 6, follow the Trillium Loop past post 7 and pick up the Lower Hawks trail at post 10.
