soft surfaced trail with snow

Trail Condition Blog

Why are trail conditions important?
Hiking or biking on soft-surface trails when they’re muddy can severely damage the surface. The trails through Town are designed with drainage in mind, but during the snow / rainy season things may not drain properly. When there’s snow on the ground, and temperatures rise above freezing, the ground begins to thaw the top layers of soil. However, the ground below is still frozen. This doesn’t allow for proper drainage and can cause a moist and muddy surface. Walking, riding or hiking when it’s muddy can damage trails, requiring costly and time-consuming repairs. A good rule of thumb – if you see snow on the ground, stay off the soft-surface trail. The Town has more than 30 miles of concrete trails that are available year-round.

Trails are somewhat snow-packed, fairly dry except for the trail intersection behind the Millhouse where red, green and yellow trails intersect, which is MUDDY. Quite a few fat tire bike tire tracks are present.
