Trails are well-maintained and groomed by our caretaker Matt.
It is officially mud season and the trails are in transition this time of year with some very soft snow and some wet & muddy sections on all trails.
Footwear appropriate for trails is always recommended.
Early Spring temperatures can be unpredictable so you may want to dress in layers.
There are a few "blaze orange" vests available at the Visitor's Sign-in Kiosk for our guests to wear on the trails if they wish to borrow one. Please return them to the Visitor's Kiosk.
As always, please remember to sign in at the Visitor's Kiosk.
