On Wednesday, December 10th, the Natural Resources Board approved starting a master plan review process for Blue Mound State Park to consider including a snowmobile trail.

With the board action, the DNR will now begin a more thorough review of the request for a snowmobile trail through the park.  Public meetings will be scheduled and a comment period held.  A final proposal would then be brought back to the DNR board for approval in 2015.

Spring is finally here and pretty soon the spring wild flowers will be popping up at the park.  It’s a great time to go for a hike or run on the trails.

She likes to run on the single track bike trails at the park.  She says, “What a gorgeous piece of land!  The trails are carved into the hilly terrain and offer spectacular views of the dolomite and chert outcroppings.”  More park photos at her website.
