It seems that since National Trails Day is this Saturday, all the trees are committing hare-kari (or Harry Caray if you're a Chicago fan). The trees are all falling over. One such case was reported by Val Gossett along the RecPath near Oak Valley Road.
Helpful Trail Safety Tip: If you hear someone chainsawing on the trail ahead don't just run by them without checking first because they or you could get seriously hurt. Don't assume that trail volunteers can see or hear you just because you can see us. Someone, possibly you, could be crushed by falling trees or cut with power equipment. Nobody wants that to happen. Work with us to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time on the trails.
So on a cheerier note; come on out Saturday to one of the Trails Day Hikes in Shelton, or elsewhere, and enjoy the trails. It should be fun, particularly for families with smaller children. See the Hikes and Special Events page for more information.
