    Valley Trails

    Typically the valley trails are dry before Anchorage, this year shouldn't be any different but the trails are still very wet right now and still need some time to dry before we rage them. 'like' Backcountry Bicycles Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/BackcountryBikeandSki where we'll be updating the status of trails on a regular basis. Walked from the long lake parking lot, past the first picnic table to the fields, some spots are dry but the wet spots are very wet and the long lake connector is a place we should all avoid (bikes, hikers and HORSES). Until the dirt is dry, enjoy some awesome road rides in the Valley!

    Thanks for making others aware of trail conditions. I was going to try to install more donor name plates (the ones that were finished in December) and decided it was too wet to even walk out there.

    Trails are still wet... More sunny days like today should get things dry pretty quick. Thanks to the anchorage guys and gals for calling the shop looking for trail updates!

    Jabez... they are shaping up real nice. Kepler side is good to go, we suggest staying off the crevasse side until things dry up a bit more (shouldn't be long with the sun and wind). Expect mud and water wherever the trail is shaded mostly North Facing trails and the bottom of trails where the drainage is poor!

    Work day yesterday

    We were out there yesterday, a half dozen of us or so. Got rid off all the downed trees, leaf blew (blowed?), resculpted some rutted sections of tread, and armored some muddy sections of Moose Poop Loop with gravel.

    I would say that most of the greenbelt trails are now safely dry enough to ride. The main Mooseberry Mesa loop is totally dry but we are asking that folks kindly refrain from riding Moose Poop Loop as the bottom section is still pretty muddy. Give 'er another week or so, if you can control your urges.

    If anyone wants to help us out, Mooseberry has some scattered light trash that blew in from the dump and if y'all could put in a few minutes of time and help us pick that up when you're out there, the karma gods will surely smile upon you.

    There are remaining short sections of mud puddles on some of the Crevasse Morraine wide track but most of it is avoidable. If you find yourself leaving visible ruts, please get off and walk those sections. Then you can blame the tracks on hikers

    Have fun and enjoy the trails! Thanks, most of you, for waiting until the trails dried this spring.
