Just an FYI to anyone using the western end of the trail, I just received the following email. This would be on the side of Windsor closest to Clinton.

I live in Windsor and frequent the Trail. I wanted to make you aware of a potentially dangerous area just at the south end of Windsor. As you are leaving Windsor on the Trail and go under Hwy 52 by the Windsor Livestock Auction the entire area on both sides of the trail there are some kind of bees in the dirt nesting. Maybe bumblebees or something - not just honey bees. This is in all of the dirt up under the bridge and there are a large number. My fear would be someone getting off the trail and not realizing these are there. I wouldn't have noticed except for the noise.

We were on the trail Saturday morning and the bees were swarming low right in the middle of the trail. They were hard to see until you are riding right through the swarm. All four of us were luckily unharmed and not stung, but they she scared us.

It sounds like a nest of ground hornets, although not aggressive they can become so if threatened.

I'm curious if anyone has any recent updates on the bees situation described in this forum.

I rode under that bridge the past two weekends, I didn't notice any signs of bees.
