LLELA's Trails

Beaver Pond Paddling Trail conditions: Great news! The recent heavy rains have filled the Beaver Pond! Intrepid kayakers/canoers can launch from the Beaver Pond parking lot, with these cautions: 1) The pond has a great deal of floating debris and brush blocking the paddling route, making it hard to navigate and creating rafts for stranded fire ants. We will clear this ASAP, but as of 4/27/2015 this is not done. It will not be a good place for novices to paddle until the route is cleared; and 2) The parking lot needs a mow when it is dry enough for us to do so. Paddle at your own risk.
