Hiking: hiking conditions are good. We started summer trail mowing in late June, and 99% of the trails have been mowed at least once. Grasses are short where mowed, often waist high (or higher) if not mowed.
Biking: the West Side trails offer the best biking, that area tends to be the driest (but BE SURE TO READ 'Important Updates' below). The East Side trails are surprisingly dry this summer, and more 'bike-able' than usual. On the East Side, after rainy weather avoid the trails far to the east, they usually are damp and soft.
Bugs: mosquitoes currently are a bit bothersome.
A 50-100 meter segment of West Side trail adjacent to a beaver dam is soggy between intersections H-I; you can walk your bike through this spot - but anticipate wet shoes.
Due to recent logging, on the East Side, avoid Rut Road between intersections 20-21-22. Click here for details
Due to active logging, on the West Side, avoid the loop between intersections D-E-D, and watch for logging traffic from A-B-C-D.
April 24, 2021: snow showers
Summertime mowing began in late June on the East Side trails. East Side mowing was completed on July 25th. The West Side was mowed in the last half of July. Click here for a map showing East Side mowing details.

Update signing privileges for our checking account (Superior Choice Credit Union in Bruce, WI) and our online savings account (First Internet Bank)
Due to the election of new officers in May 2019, we need to update the signing privileges on our bank accounts. Currently Ron Jasperson and Tom Paulsen have signing privileges.
Since Tom Paulsen (secretary / treasurer) handles the banking, his signing privileges will continue as long as he's an officer of the organization. A second individual (officer) needs signing privileges in the event Tom is unavailable.
In May 2019 Ron Jasperson was replaced as president by Sam Behrends. Tom Paulsen will contact Superior Choice Credit Union (checking account) and First Internet Bank (online savings account) with instructions to remove Ron Jasperson's signing privileges, and add signing privileges for Sam Behrends.
Motion to adjourn by Tom Paulsen, second by Sam Behrends. Adjourned at 7:10 p.m.
Taken by Tom Paulsen, Secretary
