The 7.5K, Wolf, Coyote, Raven, and Pierre Harvey were also groomed recently and are in great condition. Sarah Steele Loops were groomed overnight and are now good for classic or skating.

There are several Emergency supply caches located on the trail system which are marked on the trail map. Additional preparation for the cold temperatures should include dressing in layers and taking a cell phone.
