Happy New Year! For the first update of 2007, I figured I'd give a trail condition report. The trails are MUDDY!!! Now is the worst time to be in the Fells. This goes for everyone.
Due to a set of rules that is completely biased against mountain bikers, the current 'Winter Ban' in the Fells only applies to bikes. However it is equally irresponsible for all trail users to be on the trails at this point. Wait for the mud to dry up!

It just snowed the other day. And most of the ponds still have some small areas of ice on them. Yet, there has been a Brush Fire warning for days. It doesn't seem like it, but it's been very dry lately, and with all the wind and the strong spring sunlight, fires can spark up very easily.
Friday I was in the Fells and what did I see? What I think was the Winchester Fire department putting out a good sized brush fire by the Reservoirs.
As always, If you're going to be in the Fells, be careful. Its hard to see in this not so great photo, but the orange blob in the middle is some fairly large flames.
