Blue Hills Trail CONDITIONS
Good fall color. Good hiking and biking throughout the trail system. A small segment of the East Side trails still needs mowing (look at the mowing report below). As of September 1st, THE ENTIRE TRAIL SYSTEM has been cleared of downed trees resulting from the devastating December 2022 ice storm. Click here for maps showing the open trails. Trails involved in logging this past year have a dirt surface rather than grass (see logging notes under 'Important Updates').
Insect activity is low.
1-Logging on the West Side between intersections Y & Z is done for now.
2-Autumn 2022, loggers cut a large timber sale on the East Side. It's probably wise to avoid hiking those trails in all but very dry weather. Click here for a map showing the involved trails.
April 30: damp leaf top dusting
grooming & MOWING

- Consider opening a new online savings account
- Consider closing our existing online savings account
For several years, our savings account has been located at Capital One 360 online. After opening that account, for the first year we received a special interest rate in the vicinity of 2%. Currently that account yields an interest rate of 0.4%.
It seems that very few banks offer business savings accounts with a significant interest rate. However, recently Tom checked bankrate.com and found an online bank (First Internet Bank of Indiana) offering an interest rate of 1.8%. Ron, Sam and Tom agreed today that it makes sense to open a savings account with First Internet Bank (FIB); then after transferring our savings, close our existing savings account with Capital One 360.
Tom will submit the FIB new account application November 27th.
Motion to adjourn by Tom Paulsen, second by Ron Jasperson. Adjourned at 11:10 a.m.
