Flooding on Race Course
Parts of the Clinton Lake north fork trail are under a couple inches of water as of 2 days ago. Plus, with all the rain and wind, a few trees have fallen across the trail. The river is really high going into the lake, but at least it hasn't topped the bridge at the canoe access lot. Last year, the river took out a few wood planks on that bridge and it wasn't repaired for months! We have a great support crew for the trail (including a retired DNR employee--thanks Mike!) so with 2 weeks to the race, we should be fine. It would be nice to have dry weather. I'm off to Kentucky today for the Land Between the Lakes 60K race tomorrow. I'll try to have another trail condition update soon.
