Balmoral-Indian Caves Nature Trail

In December of 2014, Thomas Salamon (Troop #628) wrapped up his Eagle Scout Project. He led a project to transform an existing section of the Indian Caves Trail from Balmoral Ridge down to the Indian Caves into an informative nature walk. With the help of his fellow troop members, leaders and family, twelve numbered posts were installed at points of interest (indicating specific trees, birds indigenous to the area, and the Indian Caves). Thomas then created a brochure that gives a brief description of each numbered object.

Misson, Vision & Goals

The LLA Trailblazers is a small, dedicated group who have a common goal of helping the Lake Linganore Association staff restore, preserve, and improve the many miles of trails that are in the community. Adult property and lot owners, as well as LLA teenagers, are welcome to join the group. Members of the community who become involved with activities of the Committee benefit: by fulfilling a desire to “give back” to the community; by gaining a sense of pride in their accomplishments; and by meeting, working alongside of, and fostering friendships with other members of the Lake Linganore who share common interests.

It is envisioned that in the future the group will perform only light physical activities such as spot-pruning encroaching vegetation, marking trails, and monitoring/reporting deteriorating trail conditions and emergency repairs to LLA staff. It is our hope that with staff performing trails maintenance duties (as outlined in the “Eaglehead Trail System Maintenance Plan”, approved by the LLA Board of Directors on December 1, 2003), and with the Committee’s decreased (but still active) presence, it will be ensured that the trails system remains a viable and valuable community amenity.
