    Dusty March Singletracks

    Took an exploratory mission out to CrevMo yesterday and was pleasantly surprised by dry and dusty singletrack with only occasional patches of ice. The main wide trails have a lot of ice but it's generally possible to skirt the edges. The singletrack trails we went on were in great shape, very dry with no snow and only an occasional ice patch on the tread. Felt like summer riding.

    It should stay good as long as the temps stay cool, I'm sure it will get muddy on the main trails as soon as it gets warmer in the afternoons, but it could be an early season for Crevasse and Keplar Bradley trails.

    Looks inviting Mark. I have never been riding there. I will have to make it a destination this spring. Great to see you at the Little Su 50 start. I'll have to hook up with you and have you show me the trails at CrevMo..

    Later

    I almost forgot, too.

    I was thinking of Bill and KathiM out on the sea ice while at the same time I'm riding sweet dirt singletrack in the warm sun. I felt really bad

    waaahoooooooooooooooooo

    Calvin : Ahhh, another bowl of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs! The second bowl is always the best! The pleasure of my first bowl is diminished by the anticipation of future bowls and by the end of my third bowl, I usually feel sick.
    Hobbes : Maybe you shouldn't use chocolate milk.
    Calvin : I tried Cola, but the bubbles went up my nose.

    Where at???

    I guess I'm not familiar with CrevMO

    Crevasse Moraine?

    I"d be happy to hear where to drive and park for this place.

    Thanks.

    Crevasse Morraine near Palmer

    Take Palmer Wasilla Highway 2 miles from Palmer, L. on Loma Prieta Drive across from Curves for Women, go to end of Loma Prieta. You can park at the Mat-Su Borough Trailhead ($4 parking fee or Borough Season Pass). I am not at liberty to publicly disclose the exact location of the trails we rode but this will get you in the general area. Or come out this evening, we're riding around 5:30.

    I have not yet seen what shape the nearby Mooseberry Mesa or the Kepler trails are in, hopefully we'll check it out this evening.

    Mooseberry Mesa is good too.

    After an evening ride yesterday, we found the ridgetop trail and Southern Loop on the Mooseberry Mesa Singletrack are ice free down to frozen dirt (OK, there's a few little patches, not a deal breaker) but the northern MoosePoop Loop has lots of ice which makes those hairpins pretty treacherous. I am guessing that a lot of the trails in Kepler Bradley are ice free too, but that is unvarified. The ice is just sublimating away in the sun and the wind without bothering to drip any water on the trail. I like that.
