I just wanted to provide a bit of an update for the trails restoration project scheduled for April 27th
Hal and I were out on the larger 5 mile loop marking trail and we found that Beavers are once again active in the Beaver pond. In addition to that the amount of rain we have been getting along with what is forecasted for the next few days may make that area a little too wet to work in, but we’ll keep an eye on it. With that said, there are still plenty of areas that we will be able to get work done in that are good and dry.
We will still be meeting in the Parking area just northwest of the intersection of M115 and Lake Station Ave. We do have at least a couple people that will be staying at the Mud Lake State Forest Campground and also some staying overnight in Evart. I’ll give these words of advice to everyone. Please don’t cut across country from the Evart area on any of the back roads to the parking area on M115. Use US 10 to Lake Station Ave., then North to M115. Turn left on M115 and the parking area will be just a few hundred feet on the South side of the road. The back roads are in very bad condition right now and it is very slow going on the dirt roads so try to stick to the paved roads. The dirt road into Mud Lake has plenty of pot holes but we got in just fine.
Remember a good set of gloves and pruning shears if you have a set. Bring plenty of water and a lunch for on the trail.
