  This is a "special report" on the Doan Lake loop that branches off of the main Trout Lake trail. Skiing was excellent today and this single-track trail gets very little use and is beautiful! This trail branches off the Trout Lake Trail about 3/4 mile from the Trout Lake parking area. Then the trail loops about 3.5 miles and eventually returns to the Trout Lake Trail at the same spot. There are some challenging hills, but most of the trail is gently rolling through a variety of wooded habitats. This gorgeous trail must be one of the best kept secrets in the county. Snow conditions continue to be outstanding. You will not be disappointed if you try this loop. This was my first time on this loop, though I have skied the main Trout Lake Trail many times.

  Double classic track in excellent condition. Met the groomer on the trail. Absolutely, the best skiing of the year is now!

  Excellent skiing with a dusting of new snow on the double tracks. It doesn't get any better than this. Get out and enjoy this trail, which appears to be one of the best-maintained in the county!

  Four inches of new snow, Trout and Doan track set. Should make for great skiing. More snow falling. Keep on skiing.
