South of Price Rd should be clear. Markers 14 to 3 is clear. 16-17 is clear.

Still working on it. Snow is fairly deep on the trails still.

What works good for trail grooming? We have a gator that isn't making it down the trails currently with the deep snow. I see a snowmobile cruised down some of the trails and packed it down real good. Would just driving a snowmobile down the trail work? Or would that be too bumpy?

Is that a video of Sleepy Hallow? I've never been there before, but I'd go if they are grooming!

Started dragging my old chain link fence gate with 2 cinder blocks on top behind the gator last week. I'm only doing from behind the park headquarters to the inner loop between 13 and 14. Then going north to 14, 15, 2 then west to 1 through the campground to 17 back south to 16 at the East Picnic Area. The snow seems to set up pretty good after "grooming" it.

The gator is having a rough time with the deep snow thats the reason for just doing that small loop which is around 2 miles.

I saw a mountain biker out yesterday (saturday) but I think he missed the "groomed" section. Crosscountry skier said the "groomed" part was nice for sking.

Lots of snow on the trails, some big drifts, I heard of a small tree maybe 6-8 inch diameter that is down across the trail somewhere on the north section of the trails.

Wet and Muddy. Some trees down. Be awhile before things dry out and we clear trees.
