    Who's the developer? Maybe they could be convinced to turn it over to someone else? I'm really surprised at this! On surprised it hasn't been made a state park etc. I'm wondering what we can do???

    Litter and Trash at East Creek Lake. Grrrrr....

    Well I called them and made arrangements for the trash. I noticed so much more than the amount I was able to pick up. All the way down to the other entrance of the trail as well as the other side of the street. Gonna take at least 5 more bags. And I haven't even started on Ponds Trail and Pickle...

    Is overnight trail camping legal in the Belleplain area?

    I'm wondering if doing an overnighter is allowed on the hiking trails around the Belleplain area such as East Creek Trail or Ponds Trail. I've always wanted to "snow camp" and I'd like to try it there since its fairly close to home in case things go bad.

    Litter and Trash at East Creek Lake. Grrrrr....

    Was by there the other day and was just livid by all the trash just thrown around at the launch area. Maddening. Beer cans, the cartons, liqour bottles thrown all over. I may go out there tomorrow and pick up as much as I can depending on the weather. But I'd really like to catch these morons...
