Comments
Comments: No snow, very little mud, and only a few blow-downs.

There is a super muddy section on the beginning of the Piper trail where the trail turns hard right (ascending), but it's easy to miss amidst all of the muck. I went left and followed a snowmobile trail which ultimately led me back to the trail, but it was weird. Keep your eyes on the right of the mud pit for a near 90 deg. turn.

Weetamoo is a bit leafy at the moment, but not treacherous. Trails are in great shape for the most part.
