Lots of skiers and snow shoe trekkers were out today on Ward Trail! The Trail was clear of downed trees today. The Ward area is a good option for avoiding crowding at County Line and Skyway during busy weekends! Today, the Ward Trail crossing of the outflow stream from Deep Slough Reservoir was not passable on skis – see attached photo. Hopefully the forecast snow will fix that problem soon. If not, take Deep Slough Trail, which parallels Ward Trail. Deep Slough Trail crosses the Deep Slough Dam and avoids that stream entirely. We saw a few exposed rocks, but we avoided hitting them. Still, rock skis are advised on the early season snow.
