Trail Report 2015              


Dec. 17 2015
 
With all the snow we have had the last couple of days the trails are filled right in. There is a path being formed by a few hardy souls! Sage and I chugged along. Oh, the parking lot is cleared out and the road in is fine.

With the warm air that's been happening this week (not that we are complaining what-so -ever!) the trail are getting iced over a slippery.

A busy at the Park today. Canada's Snow Birds aerobatic team flew in formation just at tree top overhead of the park (old picture). They are here for the Grey Cup, (no Blue Bombers though) there will be a lot of tourists in town so make sure to give everybody a warm Winnipeg welcome!

Also I saw a Red Fox out in the field that borders the 8th hole of Players Golf Course.

We'll we knew it was coming. Our first blast of winter! Farmers Road was fine, parking lot and the trails were not bad at all. The dogs were having a great time playing in the snow.

Nov. 14 2015 Skunk
 
I received a phone from Wally this morning that the skunk was dead along Saskatoon trail, north of the Golf Course Trail. I've called 311 and the Province and they will take care of the body. Please keep the dogs away from it.

From 311

Thank you for your email. I appreciate you including the additional details regarding the location. That is a huge help when dealing with a big area like the park. I have reported the skunk to our crews in charge of picking up dead animals. It will be attended to within 1 business day.

Nov. 11 2015 Skunk Alert
 
Heads up or I should say noses up everybody. Skunk alert people! Two of the dogs (Ruff and Patty) got sprayed this morning at the farm house (SW corner) of the park. The smell was still strong in the air when we had gotten there.

Trails Nov. 05 2015
 
I wrote this to the City council and the head of the Parks Branch today.

' I thought that you should be made aware of the trail situation at Little Mountain Park. The City crews went in today with a Bob-cat (I guessing) with a blade to remove some downed trees after the wind storm a couple of weeks ago. They carved up the already rain soaked saturated trails with the tracks and blade. The crew created one heck of a mess, knocked down trees and peeled up the grass in different spots."

Enough with the rain already! The trails are really getting swampy. You might want to consider breaking out the rubber boots.

We saw a Great Grey Owl in the middle of the park along the Main Trail this afternoon. Hopefully they will be nesting in the park.

After all the rain the last couple of days most of the trails are pretty muddy so bring towels, lots of towels! Next week it looks like the weather could be nice again. There are still a couple of trees down across the trails as well after the wind storm.

What a change from yesterday! We go from a fantastic warm weekend to ... this! Be aware that there is a wind warning out when walking the trails. Listen for any cracking of branches and watch out for any debris flying by.

Labour Day long weekend. Just a tad soggy to put it lightly after the monster downpour yesterday.

Hope everybody's basement stayed dry.

What a fun filled weekend this turned out to be. Even after all the heavy rain and winds the trails are not bad shape at all. There are the usual muddy spots but overall not to bad.

Holy Hannah! Sage and I made the mistake of walking down the Golf Course trail today. The mosquitoes were so thick that we pretty much had to run to the Small field. No fun at all for the dogs. At least there is a breeze in the Big Field.

The trails are in great shape except for Hawthorne which has two muddy spots in the middle (guess you found that out!), and Frog Bog is good and muddy near the small field. 

Strawberry's are out, Saskatoon's are about a week or two away. There are a few ready for picking but not really that many yet. Chokecherry's are a long way off as well as the plumbs.

The trails are not in that bad a shape after the rains. The same old mud and puddles in the normal spots. Farmer rd. however is a real treat with all the truck traffic on it. I seen today that 1/4 down was being placed on the road but that won't last long.

After all the rain we had the trails are not in bad shape at all, muddy in spots but not bad. But bring the bug spray with you and don't plan on standing still for very long! Be warned (sound like Dracula).

After the rain today there were a few puddles on the trails that could be easily side stepped (if you have a Lab you'll understand!). The fallen trees from the storm have been cleaned up. Frog Bog is still full of water. And Manitoba's favourite bug are coming up with the standing water!

The trails for the most part have dried up nicely.' Frog Bog' is full of water and muddy, the edges of the Golf course trail have water in them and at the end of the 5th hole is a bit of a lake. Lots of standing water there so you know what that means! Still a lot of trees across the trails.

What a mess after the storm yesterday! Trees were downed everywhere. The trails have large puddles and most are very muddy. Great fun for a the dogs that like to splash and get muddy.

Little bit of rain made it a tad muddy in a couple of spots on every trail. Nothing out of the normal on a rainy day!
