Are there actually atv trails out here? I mean that the park allows atvs on? Or are atvs prohibited?

I noticed this morning that the paved path running through Clara Miller Park (across the street from Hickory Glen Park) was free of snow as far as the eye could see. There still may be frozen snowy slush on where it runs through the woods. The hickory glen single track is undoubtedly still covered with snowy slush or too wet due to spring thaw conditions and should only be ridden if dry or frozen ..I know I'm typically speaking to the choir on this forum.

I walked all the trail sections on the North side of the new bride(Disney and beyond), while doing some basic spring maintenance(clearing sticks and branches). I didn't see any snow, ice, slush, mud or even a slick spot during my walk....just a lot of leaves. I can't comment on the trail sections South of the bridge. I'm planning to go back Thursday afternoon to do a similar clean-up on the first 3.5 miles.

Minus the couple chronic wet / low spots, Hickory Glen is dry. (Go ride it)

As always ride when dry or frozen and thanks to everyone who did so far this spring.

Today, I cleared sticks, branches and debris starting from the trailhead going forward about 0.5 mile past the red house(with trampoline in back yard). I was hoping to finish up, but there was a lot to pick-up, so it was slow going. The only other section I haven't walked yet is between my stopping point today(past red house) and the two steep hills that meet up to paved trail. A few trail runners told me there is one or two downed trees in that section as well, but I can't tell you exactly where they are.

Other than the creek bed near the red house, I didn't see any mud on the trail sections I've walked. I say get out there and ride to pack everything down!!! Very exciting!!!!

I cleared more branches and debris today walking backwards from the two steep hills at the paved path back to the creek bed(mile marker 2ish). I also cleared the downed tree that was in the same section. The only section I haven't seen is the short loop that basically starts and ends and creek bed hills. I know that is confusing. Tim, we need some landmark names!!! :-)

Rode today, you guys have it in good shape early. Couple dabs cuz I cornered too fast on leaves. Do the leaves eventually go away on their own or do they need a rake/blower?

Bring ear plugs... those Spring Peeper frogs are LOUD.
