Today I took the time to enjoy a nice cross county ski at the Bethel Nordic Ski Center at the The Bethel Inn Resort. It was sunny at the start but by the time I finished the clouds off to the north had reached me and a good snow squall had begun. I took the Hedgehog Trail which has become my favorite because it is one of the longest trails at 4.5 kilometers yet one of the easiest trails. I like to begin at the eastern side of the trail which means as you leave the Inn bear left and go by the pool. It's pretty level for the first half of this trail and then on the back side you have a couple of nice "downhill" runs followed by level again. The only real uphill portion will be the last 300 yards as you head back up to the Inn and by then you know you're home.
