Moonstomper Trail UPdate

Winter weather has moved aside for a few days and the mercury is now up in the 50's. The snow has melted off the trails and we are taking full advantage.

Saturday, Mike Baldwin joined me for a day of work clearing the new 'Moonstomper Trail' along Salt Pond Mountain's ridge as it runs towards Bear Cliffs. This will be a nice single track for advanced level mountain bikers looking for a challenge and also birdwatchers.

We are almost finished constructing our info kiosk for the new day-use parking area and hope to have it up by the end of the week. Progress is also being made in opening up the new parking area near the stables of Rt. 613.

Our Thursday afternoon mountain bike trail rides will begin this Thursday evening at 4:45 if the weather allows. Email if you are interested in joining in on the fun. If things are too wet - we will do light trail work on Moonstomper instead. You'll definitely get some hiking in!

Come on by The Mountain Lake Conservancy Visitor's Center and say "Hi" we are usually here M-F, from 9 - 5.
