The only time to stay away from this area is November 15 to November 30, when white-tail deer rifle hunting is in season.
This might not be the best area to run because of the varied levels of terrain and the spring wetlands.
The Little Tom Swamp Trail takes you through some of the great swamp wetlands of Ely Lake Campground. It starts at the Wakazoo Trail (aka Northwest Trail), winds past Little Tom Lake, and connects to Fallen Forest Trail and Two Track Trail. Other than springtime, you should not have any difficulty keeping your feet dry. It is easy enough to run on this moist trail in the springtime by hopping over some moss-covered terrain.
