Standing Cedars Community Land Conservancy, a land trust operating primarily in southwest Polk County, is hosting a cross-country ski event on Saturday, January 4th. Standing Cedars has always been open for cross-country skiing, but of the pioneering, break-your-own-trail sort. Now, for the first time, we’re experimenting with a groomed trail. A 5k loop will be freshly groomed early Saturday morning, and the first skiers will launch at 10am.
The trail starts and ends at our main Englewood parking lot. To get there, starting from East Farmington (on Hwy 35), go west on 30th Avenue to 280thStreet, then turn left and go south about seven eighths of a mile. The parking lot and trail head will be on the west, or right-hand side of the road. Dress warm, and come join the fun! Or, if you can’t make it, check it out afterward on Facebook Here. Then come and visit the trail, on your own, whenever you can.
