    Logging in the Oakridge - Alpine Trail Area

    Hello All!

    Be aware that there will be a logging & thinning in the Alpine Trail area near Windy Pass (FS-1910, FS-1912, FS-1802 junction). Most of the units of the "Cabin Thin Timber Sale" are along the FS-1802 road and all timber will be hauled down the FS-1802 road towards Lowell. There are two units that will effect access and they will be logged first (starting with in the next couple of weeks).

    Unit 46 is confined by FS-1910, FS-1802, FS-1911 on three sides. This is the area on your right as you exit the Jedi section, travel along FS-1910 and onto FS-1911 for the first 1/4 mile.

    Unit 45 straddles the FS-1912-140 spur at the junction of FS-1912 and along FS-1912 below the junction.

    None of these units will close the Alpine Trail! There are no road closures and the fellers, loggers and trucks should allow you to pass. Please make yourself known. The contractors have been made aware of the importance of the adjacent Alpine Trail and should be accommodating.

    For anyone climbing FS-1802 for any kind of Alpine, Tire, Winberry Trail connection, THIS IS NOT ADVISED!!! FS-1802 will be highly effected in this timber sale over the winter and through the spring... The will be working from top to bottom in elevation.

    Okay, now for the Good News. Recreation gets a portion of the funds generated by tiber receipts that will go back into Recreation. Maybe it will go into some Alpine Trail luv'n or maybe a trail connection below Jedi to eliminate the FS-1910 and FS-1911 road section of the Alpine Trail!

    Anyway, be aware of logging traffic!

    Cheers!

    Logging continues near the Alpine Trail at Windy Pass and near on the FS-1912-140. The trail and the roads are NOT closed, but use common sense. Before entering in to the work zone, make yourself known and point to the direction you want to travel. The loggers will wave you through when it is clear to pass.

    How is the Alpine trail right now? Does it hold good in winter? I rode it this summer for the Super D and it blew my mind! My favorite trail to date.
