    Signal Peak Fire...........What a bummer!

    Didn't see any threads about this. Such a shame! The trails around Signal Peak were my favorite out of everything I've ridden in the whole state. Tight flowy singletrack with an epic downhill and several different ecosystems throughout the descent.

    InciWeb the Incident Information System: Signal Fire

    Dear trails, you will be missed. At least it is almost contained. Thank you to everyone who helped fight those flames.

    Hopefully the Forest will get some rehab dollars. The fire is pretty well contained and we've been getting light to moderate rain this afternoon/evening. However, some lightning came with the storms so we'll see what pops (if anything) tomorrow...

    I think it will be OK. The Signal Peak Challenge was held a few years ago when the course was still slightly on fire from a controlled burn, so it is not a new thing. I am guessing it will look pretty bad for a while, though.

    I was pretty sad when the Black Range burned pretty bad last year but now only one of the trails is still off limits. I am thinking it is a fact of life around here.

    I hear the trails are OK, but closed. They will get messed up after the rains, I'm sure.
