    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Wood removal from Snowy Range trails

    I've been on Rock Creek Trail, North Fork Laramie Trail, and Corner Mountain recently and they all could use a little help. Anyone out there interested in helping me? I could procure a chainsaw and z-drag.

    I'd be more that willing to help, but I'm probably not gonna have time until after the Enduro. I had thought about a possible quick ride on Sunday up the north fork- is it melted out clear up? how much wood are we talking, rideable, or too much hassle?

    the north fork- is it melted out clear up?
    Ha! Good one! The trail is dry up to about 10,000, when it starts leveling off a bit. You're transitioning to the subalpine and then there is a ton of snow. If you want to connect it to other trails you will want to wait until after the enduro anyways. Right now it's an out n back. I enjoyed it, but it was nice to be doing something different.

    Corner mountain is in the best shape, the wood was a minor annoyance. Many logs you cold slow down and ride over.

    North Fork was annoying, I would say there were about 6 log portages.

    Rock Creek was miserable, the logs combined with the manky rock sections = a lot of walking.

    Snowy Range conditions. I'll interpret the above as:

    Corner Mountain: dry
    Little Laramie: dry (probably)
    Rock Creek: dry?
    North Fork: 2/3? dry

    Can anyone fill in these, or at least guess:

    Barber Lake/Green Rock: Probably mostly dry?
    Sheep Mountain:
    Tie Hack:
    Sheep Lake: Snow
    French Creek: Snow
    Bear Lake Rd.: Wet/Snow
    Quealy Lk. Loop: Wet/Snow
    Add others here...


    Anyone riding in the snowy's today (Saturday)? I was thinking about doing Sheep Mountain.

    North Fork cleared today!

    North Fork Trail was cleared of trees today. There's a little mud at the beginning in the trees, and the usual wet spot is not too bad 1/3 of the way down past the bridges and into the trees. Call it good to go all the way through the Little Laramie System (River Loop).

    go get some!
