Trail Snow Report
La Salle Lake State Recreation Area
Trails are still holding up well through the rec area. Some settling of snow with the warm sunshine this week.
Snowshoe Trails:Snowshoeing is still great for this time of year! Snow depth will vary with 20-inches plus in open areas to just over a few inches in the heavy conifer covered areas. Snowshoers did pack the Challenge Trail on Saturday (March 3) but last weeks snow will once again make for great, challenging snowshoeing!
Snowmobile Trails: Trails range from fair to good to excellent depending on where you are. Some bare spots on south facing slopes, curves and hill tops.
Other Nature Notes: Trumpeter swans are returning to the area. Look for them along open water on LaSalle Creek and the Mississippi River. Bald eagles are returning to their nesting areas. Listen for the spring calls of chickadees and woodpeckers.
Open water remains where the creek enters and leaves LaSalle Lake. Use caution along the shore as the water is very cold. (Remember, ice conditions are never 100% safe).
