Notes

Mcnaughton Lake Trail follows old logging roads around three lakes and has very few steep hills. It is very scenic and an excellent trail for a beginner. A five and a half mile loop is groomed for skating. There is a shelter with a fire ring on the trail.

I skied the classic blue loop; tracks set well, snow is very dry and slow; as usual this year, some leaf litter in the tracks to stick to, especially under the hemlocks. Perfect place to ski.

All loops groomed and classic track re-set. Approximately 2" new snow was just enough to mix in and create mostly fully formed track with no debris - Some stretches may have patchy track.

I skate skied the red loop and classic skied the blue loop. The skate deck appeared to have irregularities but it actually was quite even and smooth. Overall skate conditions were very good. The tracks on the classic trail were very good but a little slow. Overall classic conditions were very good too.

I arrived early afternoon. The groomer arrived a short time after I did. I first skied the blue loop which had not been groomed yet. The track was extremely icy and I had to switch between the left and right track to make sure I had a free ski on the outside of corners to control speed. There was a ton of debris in the track. Conditions were poor at best. When I got to the trail hut, I could see the groomer had made its initial pass on the red skate loop. Returning to the parking lot, I could see the groomer had made a pass on the green loop. It was raked but not tracked. That first pass with the groomer dissipated the ice and forest debris and made conditions much better. Conditions were now good even without a track. This time when I got to the trail hut, I decided to classic ski the red loop even though there was no track. This is such a beautiful loop it was worth the effort even without a track. Since this is the skate loop, it is never tracked. I usually skate the red loop. When I returned to the trail hut the third time, I could see that the groomer had made another pass on the blue/green loop and now it was tracked. Conditions back to the parking lot were good to very good. Most of the forest debris had been churned under.

Excellent conditions. Groomer was out on trail when we started so for a while we skied on rolled but not tracked surface until groomer came around second time tracking trail. The conditions were great even on the freshly rolled surface but really nice after the groomer passed us when tracking the trail. The rest of the time on the freshly tracked trails was excellent. Some debris down especially in the area of heavy conifers but still great skiing. Thanks groomers!

All loops groomed and classic track re-set. A fair amount of debris in some areas from recent winds and melting. Tracks a bit chunky and not fully formed in a few spots, but overall good conditions.
