Took a hike out here the other day with my machete, cut a few low and high on the reclaimed section also. Colors were awesome!

Took a ride at Sharon Mills this weekend. It is a nice layout but too much grass riding for my liking. If you are looking for a beginner trail with no technical sections then this is a good place to start. If you are looking for a technical single track then I would skip this trail. This trail needs a lot more use.

Hi All,

The trail was given its final mow of the season a week ago Tuesday. It should be good for biking, hiking, or skiing for the next few months. If you happen to be out on the trail and notice anything that needs attention, please post it here and we will attend to it.

Cheers, Norm

Hi All,

I walked the trail yesterday and cleared it of debris dropped during the recent windy weather. There are still, however, three trees down that will need to be removed. We're working on it. In the meantime, they are easy to step over and are marked with orange tape. Once they are cleared, the trail should be good for the winter. The main trail, excluding the single track along the old roadbed, should be good for hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Reminder: horses are prohibited on this trail. If you see riders gently remind them of that.

Happy Holidays, Norm

Greetings All,

The entire trail has been mowed within the last week and is good for riding or hiking. Note that there is a tree down on the east end of the River side loop, but it can easily be stepped over. We plan to remove is as soon as possible. Also, be aware that the southwest corner of the northern field is wet and the trail is a bit muddy there at the moment.
Lots of wildlife to be seen, including a pair of wood ducks by the bench along the river and families of Canada geese.

Cheers, Norm
