AAPOA Trail Committee

AuSable Acres Property Owners’ Association

The AAPOA Trail Committee is re-marking our trail system.

Eventually all trails will be re-marked with either a circular or a triangular trail marker.

The markers will have a newly designed double “A” logo stenciled on it    

We are marking only the trails that JLKN Acres and the AAPOA agreed to allow members of the AAPOA to utilize.

Please remember that the trail system is private property owned by JLKN Acres.  People using the trail system must have the permission of JLKN ACRES or be a member of the AAPOA to hike these trails.

Please hike safely!!!

Spring Trail Work

Because of the Coronavirus emergency, our spring trail work day has been cancelled.

But, the number of people using our trails has increased to an all-time high, as more people realize the value of our trails as a way to exercise and enjoy fresh air during the pandemic. And many people have expressed an interest in giving back to the trails. There are a number of trail projects that Acres residents can safely perform by themselves with no social contact.

If you are interested in working on one of these projects, send an email message to Frank Krueger, our trail coordinator, at fkktrails@gmail.com, along with your telephone number. Frank will call you back to discuss the various projects.

Fall Trail Maintenance Day

Join us for our fall trail maintenance day; Saturday, October 5th 2019. We’ll meet at the Lake Eaton parking lot at 8:30AM and then gather in teams and disperse to work on different parts of our trail system. Everyone is welcome as we have a list of different projects, some of which don’t include heavy lifting or a need for experience in trail work.

Please wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty including closed toe shoes and work gloves. We’ll need tools for our work and would appreciate if you could bring any of the following: shovel, garden rake, pick ax, pry bar and loppers.

Bring your own water and lunch as we’ll eat on the trail. Join us afterwards to share tales of our work and a few supplied beverages.

The event is rain or shine and contact Paul at plonge1[at]gmail.com to RSVP or for any questions. Please bring your neighbors and friends as we need all the help we can get!
