    trail conditions? - Southern & Northern Skyline Trail

    What are the conditions of the Southern Skyline Trail and Northern Skyline Trail? I'm thinking of getting away from Snow Basin and the Wheeler Creek stuff and trying something new this Saturday.

    Thanks.

    I'd bet there's no difference. Moondust and loose unless we get some rain. Wheeler, the forks and maple got hammered pretty hard with Xterra.

    I rode Ben Lomond yesterday, it's rocky enough that you don't get the deep dust.

    There is one section, east side of the trail (overlooking Liberty) where you will undoubtedly encounter moon dust, other than that, spider1234 is correct. The rocky terrain found on 99% of the trail is not conducive to moon dust, which makes it really quite nice...

    Gotcha, the BST is holding up nicely for the same reason. Hadn't ridden it in a few weeks and was surprised this morning by how well it is riding. Only really bad areas were dropping into Bues.

    Thanks for the info. One of my main concerns on how bad the trail is overgrown, if at all.

    I have not been down that way so I cannot comment on the conditions of the trail. Sorry...

    Ah yes, The whole enchalada, Eden valley style. I usually retrack from the trail junction at Ben Lomond and descend from N. Ogden divide, only because riding the road back is so boring.
