Very happy that Itasca County opened this trail system again after being partially closed in previous years for logging. It's a nice, remote area of the county where you can see wildlife that may not be in other areas. I always spend time here to look for moose, but I only actually saw any in 2011. I do usually find some tracks in the snow or browsed vegetation. What I rarely see are other people, but this day, there were two human encounters on the trail! Although the county doesn't groom this remote area frequently, the whole trail system has been groomed this season!

Had another lovely ski here Sunday after the new snowfall. Trails were a little slow being so warm and first ones on the trail. Did the Beginner and Intermediate loops. Wonderful range of textures in the landscape with the combination open and wooded. Lots of scraping on small trees since last weekend. By 3:30 the temps dropped a bit and snow got a little faster. Looking forward to doing all three loops next time. Thanks for getting these trails up and open again!

Overall pretty good condition, but the advanced loop has a lot of twiggy brush poking through. Lots of dried flower heads in the clear logged areas— I'll bet those open spots are bursting with blooms in late summer. Making a note to visit then...
