LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

TUE, DEC 6

Muncie Lakes Pathway: Reconnaissance hike at Muncie Lakes Pathway this morning before Grand Traverse Hiking Club's outing on Sunday. Will we be able to xc ski the trail then? Possibly, was tempted today, but depends on the snow accumulation between now & then. The woods have plenty of snow but lots of bare spots on the trail, at this time. Kathy, Paula & I did a fair share of branch removal & sawed one downed tree, but there are several more along the trail that are no problem to hike or ski over. The snow from Sunday night set up well, so will make a good base, with more to come. Can't wait to ski Muncie!!!

NOTE: DNR grooming for the season to be determined.

Valley Spur: Not enough snow to groom yet. We keep getting small amounts of snow, then we get warm temps and drizzle. Today should be last of the warm weather. We plan to groom Thurs. and Fri. if snow develops. Will post here.
