    The lower trails by Crystal are clear, but keep in mind that these are some of the very few open trails in SE Wyoming at the moment. Weekends will be especially crowded. Also, a storm is forecast fot the weekend, so we may be back to square one pretty soon.

    I heard the upper trails only had a couple drifts still lingering. Though, again, sounds like that's bound to change this weekend.

    Any intel on Gowdy since last snow storm? I would imagine the lowers are dry by now.

    It just snowed last night. I'll go with... no.

    However, Glendo which is 100 miles down the highway is hero dirt right now with much milder weather going on!

    Rode last night. It's all pretty good, and the State Trails guy is out there today putting Geogrid in the muddy spots. They are going to reroute Albert's between El Alto and the creek crossing just below Stone Temple this weekend, so that section should be better next time the floods come.

    Saw there was a fire on the WY/CO border. How is the smoke/air quality near Gowdy?

    It's perfectly clear, the fire was small and smoke stayed to the south.

    You bet, the wind did kick up a fair amount of smoke that was visible south of Laramie this evening, but Gowdy does not appear to be impacted.

    Cabin fever anyone? Rode the lower reservoir trails today. Practically all dry in my book.

    Great. The old stumpy hasn't been ridden since.

    Just upped travel to 140mm. Ate up middle kingdom and canyons trail yesterday. With those 3 inch tires you really don't need a rear shock. Climbs extremely well even with its 65 degree headtube angle.

    Have y'all not gotten much snow? It's been an amazing winter here in southeast Idaho, but I am ready to get rolling. Going to be a while before even our lower trails are dry, though.

    Thinking about heading to Vedeawoo on the 25/26th with the wife and 5yr old. Web cam looks mostly clear, but I don't know how much that compares to the campground and trails. Thoughts?

    If your are planning on camping around Happy Jack area the roads are currently closed. Forest service closes them until things dry out.

    I rode the upper trails at Gowdy yesterday. There was some deadfall and drifts on trail. I would stick to lower trails by reservoir.

    You can't go wrong!! One of the funnest lil' MTB areas I have ever been to. Hella variety, pick a trail 'type' Blue, Green, Red or Black and go for it! When I lived in FoCo I'd drive up there quite often and really dug the zone and all the little canyon/rock outcrop micro-zones!! Have fun and just giv'r!
    Night has fallen.
    And there's nothin' we can do about it.

    Hi, I'm heading to Curt Gowdy on Monday 5/8 to hopefully ride. How are the trail conditions? also, can you park and sleep overnight at the trail-head in a van? if not, any good info on where to camp in a van would be nice.

    What are some good loops that maximize downhill fun?

    Thanks!

    Gowdy is a state park w full on camping sites, facilities etc... you will pay an overnight fee at the gate but you can van camp near the trailheads or get yourself a formal spot and throw down w a campfire etc..
    here's a link for info etc...

    Love Gowdy riding, camping etc... can't go wrong.

    You can camp next to Gowdy in the BLM land (if thats what it is) and just pay for the day entry fee... can't go wrong that route as well - but while in gowdy - you have decent bathroom access etc...

    It's USFS and I believe all the roads are still under a seasonal closure. I've heard tell that Blair Road is open from the Summit rest area, but I'm not sure. Anyway, yeah, there's plenty of camping at Gowdy. Showers in the new visitors center, too.

    Has anyone checked out the Gowdy Lower trail system yet? Not sure if the lower trails are rideable yet.

    Anyone have current trail conditions in Curt Gowdy? How late in the year do you guys typically ride those trails? Not including snow and frozen winter riding, but general fall or late fall dirt pedaling? Thanks in advance.

    A report a few days ago made it sound like it's still good to go. Last year we were riding regular mountain bikes there in early December, but that's not necessarily typical. This webcam is on the highway right there and shows a north-facing slope, so you can get a decent idea.

    Rode the upper trails on Sunday and they were in great shape. Occasional snow on some of the treed north-facing slopes. The snow is probably gone by now.

    The crew there has been doing a great job with reroutes and making Stone Temple more beginner-friendly. There are new lines through some of the play areas (Huck Fins specifically) that give something to folks looking for more of a challenge.
