2015-02-07 IPSEN ROAD CONSERVATION AREA
Wilma and I had a nice hike in the snow. We basically walked the perimeter of the site with a short detour to the I39 bridge that provides access to County Line Forest Preserve. There is a sign at the trailhead that says County Line FP is closed due to tollway construction but the barricade I have been told was at the bridge was nowhere in evidence. Not even a sign. We did not go into County Line. Lots of snow and no foot prints. We encountered 4-6 inches of wet snow. The first two legs had trail broken by someone on a snow mobile. The 3rd leg it was mostly me and wilma and occasionally some deer prints. The 4th leg we just walked up along Ipsen Road as I was tired of the snow.
