All Trails are Open

The whole trail system is open.  When returning from Dropout or Paul's Paper Trail, follow the arrows off the ski trail to the new trail to the south.  This will avoid the muddy section of the ski trail.  Enjoy!

Trail Work Parties - Naughton Trails

Eight trail warriors came out on Wednesday to move the winter’s debris. Dan & Wayne burned the midnight oil & stayed after class ‘til dark!  The entire lower west trail section has been raked, attacked with the leaf blower and signs posted. 

Work for Sunday June 1 includes:
 - Place Fern’s & Bottom Bracket Bridge bridges
 - Rake & blow-off Rusty Ridge, Cross-Over
 - Put out garbage containers
 - Move bleachers to block the Causeway Ski Trail (six strong backs required)
 - Mow the lawn beside the Parking Lot
 - Finish lower trail signage
 - Grab board walks from east end trails for lower ski trail wet spots
 - Start cleaning off the Upper West trails – Door Step, Dead Fall, Long Road, etc…

If this dry, warm weather continues, June 14 looks promising for opening the lower trails.  Let’s hope the Jun 2 storm is only a rumour.  Stay tuned and do a Sundance.

We've create trail work events on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings for the next few weeks in the Calender of Events.  We'll keep at it until the work is done.  Check back for changes in the Upcoming Events box on the home page.

Come one out for part of the time or the whole time.

Call Rusty at 705 919 1057 if you need more information or to find the group when you get to site.
