    New trails near Blue Sky/ Indian Summer?

    It looks like a couple new trails are being built near the north end of Indian Summer heading south. Are they trails? Anyone have any info? Thanks.

    ehhhh.. there's a service road there? Thing is, due north of IS it's private prop including some houses. In the past the powers that be have built the trails first and connected them to the main trails last.

    I just rode there yesterday, AND the week before. The only "trail" that has been put there is by the farmer/rancher/land owner who had his john deere chewing up a track that looked like it paralleled the blue sky/ indian summer trail. My initial thaought was that he was trying to make a moto cross track...I hope not. That is one beutiful valley and an excellent ride

    Or are you referring to the rim rock trail junction on top of the bluff?

    it just looks like there are some freshly cut "trails" but they look pretty churned up. one parallels indian summer on the north end, then crosses blue sky and snakes around on the east side a little bit.

    If I saw the same thing, it looked like a fire break but I only caught a glimpse. They are experimenting with different ways to eradicate nonnative species and controlled burns are one of the techniques being employed.

    FC Paper said this morning that there would be prescribed burns in the DBB / Blue Sky area this week.

    They were burning several areas on both sides of the Blue Sky Trail east of Indian Summer this afternoon. Indian Summer was closed and will likely remain so for the rest of the day.
