The trail is generally in great condition: all the washouts from last year were repaired well.
Near the High Bridge trail-head a local Boy Scout is working on a bench overlook of the Lake Solitude lake and Dam. This will be very nice in the summer and fall. Also, he is re-blazing the old "locals" trail that heads down to the Taylor Wharton factory property. This will connect with other trails on preserved land recently acquired by the town. The result will be a great local network that would make any UK preservation group proud!
Cross country skiing is excellent this winter, though many users, perhaps through ignorance, do not respect the ski trials that have been cut. The further you get from the trail-heads, the less foot traffic there is and thus the better the skiing.
