2/18/25 1 PM - All trails remain closed. While there were some decent spots, the fields are bare and rough, in the wooded sections, we broke through the ice in one pass. Any traffic at all would make a quick mess of what snow we have. Sorry for the bad news, but this is what we have. Pics in the comments. Thanks HSF ... See MoreSee Less
