Trail maintenance at Guelph Lake on a Good Friday afternoon. Joined a few GORBA members to check out the trail conditions, and maintain the trails.
Trails conditions were better than expected. Most of the snow and ice had melted away! However, a few weeks of warm sunny weather are required to fully dry out the trails. Notably the Mad Hatter trail entrance to the pine tunnels was muddy and wet.
We were equipped with bow saws, loppers, and pruners. Mostly fine tunning work was done, but a few dangerous branches were removed and a small number of dangerously slanted dead trees were felled.
Clean up went well as the first sections of West Nile, Mad Hatter, and South Park were cleared in less than 2 hours. There was still a lot to do, but it was saved for another day!
