Paradise Area Trail Report – 02/10

February 10, 2019

15 degrees this morning with a light snow in the air. Sorry for no reports the last couple days but I`ve been busier than a one legged man in a a$$ kicking contest!!

We`ve had over a foot of snow the last couple days. Between running my business and keeping us blown out and working on the trails, its been tough. I know….wah…wah…right?

So……here`s the run down…..

All trails are in excellent shape. Aside from all the helmet slappers hanging in the trails from the ice storm we had last Monday. We are working VERY HARD on clearing them up. Its gonna be another week before we can get everything done. Now, don`t get me wrong, the trails are VERY RIDABLE, in fact, they are perfectly flat, just watch out for the low hanging branches. All the larger fallen trees are cleared.

Here are a couple examples of how hard we`ve been going at it……

Groomer Don, who`s 78 yrs. old BTW, spent 13 hrs. out on the Point trails #452 and #453 yesterday grooming and clearing brush, and he`s only about half way done!!!!

Groomer Mike has spent 2 days on the Pine Stump trail #8 doing the same. He`s got over 24 hrs. in clearing brush already!!!

Me and Groomer Dave M. have been working on the South trail #8. We`ve got it cleared up pretty good except for the Federal Forest section which is about 3 miles between the Silver Creek bar and Lakeshore drive.

Me and Groomer Gerald worked on the Falls trail #45 the other night for 9 hrs. getting that cleared up. There were spots where we couldn`t even get a groomer through. Gerald has worked on it since then and is going out again this morning.

So…..there you have it. Its been a rough week but we are gettin `er done!!! On top of all this, we are supposed to get another storm around this Tuesday. "They" are saying just snow but a bunch of it. Bring it on Mother Nature……WE ARE YOOPER TOUGH!!!!!

LET `ER SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We occasionally catch American Woodcock during the owl banding. They are pretty amazing to see up close. An interesting thing about them is that they apparently have better binocular vision to the rear than they do to the front. We love looking at the back of their heads to see how much of their eyes you can see when looking at them directly from behind. ... See MoreSee Less
