Fall colours are approaching peak conditions on the Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club trails at Rocky Inlet.
The trails are mowed and in good shape for walking, but wear some waterproof boots!
The club also could use some help in clearing some of the overhanging tree limbs and encroaching brush along the trail.
There is a map of the trails on the white board inside the chalet. Grab some friends, pack a picnic lunch, and take some tools along with you on your walk.
Indicate the section you have cleared on the map, along with your name.
Many hands make short work!
