The trail crew has further inspected the Massie Hills trails and determined that other than chopping up a few fallen trees across the trail, that no additional work is needed before the ski season. Apparently the years of clearing trail (and the logging that went on in 2015-2016) have left the trails in pretty good condition. The trail crew will take a chainsaw out and make short work of the few fallen trees.
The trail clearing tentatively scheduled for October 22 is therefore cancelled.
Thanks Trail Crew!
