Hiking: hiking conditions are good, grasses are short, the trails are fairly firm with occasional muddy spots. Conditions are improving with dry weather.
Biking: if interested in biking, perhaps try the near loop on the West Side trails. That area is the driest.
Bugs: bring bug juice - gnats are a bit pesky, mosquitoes are returning.
April 24, 2021: snow showers
March 6th (Saturday morning): groomed the skate lane on parts of the East Side and West Side trails. With a BIG warm-up in the forecast, this was the final grooming of the winter.
