So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

2/14/13 City Forest

A beautiful day- sunny. about 30, and very little wind. Since we have had poor luck finding good trails of late we went to nearby City Forest. There had been enough traffic that the walking was pretty easy. At the end of the West Trail there is a road that goes the short distance to the old rail bed. There had been snowmobile traffic ( they usually don't use this section) and the snow was even better packed with very easy walking. We followed it through the marsh-which is usually to wet to walk - until we were almost to Forest Ave. where the snowmobile had turned into the woods. Those trails usually lead to someones back yard so we turned back the way we had come.

This British Soldier Lichen provided a bit of color

Kelley was happy to not have to struggle with deep snow and it was a beautiful day. We met four  skiers and two dogs but no walkers.  2  1/4 hours
