    Virgin River Rim / Navajo Lake snow free?

    A few of us from Flagstaff are headed up to Red Canyon for some riding this weekend and were thinking about hitting some of the Virgin River Rim trails around Navajo Lake on the way home. Anyone know the snow status of that area? Thanks.

    With all the snow that hit there this winter...I'd be very surprised if it will be rideable before July.

    I rode the north side of Navajo yesterday (6/5/10) and there was only one tiny patch of snow. Several downed trees across the trail, mainly on the north side of the lava flow. I would guess that you will have to wait another 2 weeks for all of the south side to clear completely.

    Lot's of tree's across the trails

    Hey Guy's, I spent a couple mornings last week on the Virgin Rim Trail. It looked like there will be ALOT of work needed to get from the lake up to the rim. I started clearing the trail from Woods Ranch up, but there is also alot of chainsaw work to be done (with all the blowdown).

    As of Saturday, June 26th, the VRRT is clear of downed trees from Woods Ranch up to at least the Dike Trail. I met the trail crew on my return trip and they were just finishing up the last of the trees near the western end of the trail. The trail is a bit rough still from winter, but it should get ridden in pretty quickly.

    As of 7pm Sunday the entire VRRT is deadfall and snow free and in the finest shape I have ever ridden it.

    Thanks a ton to whoever did all the trail work - it was a beauty ride this weekend.

    I raced the Dixie-Lite. Lots of pics here.

    Ride On! I plan to do the VRRT again this summer. Last year we encountered a lot of downed trees also. Is there a disease in the forest killing all the trees down there?

    Hey Lynda. I loved your blog report on the Dixie Lite race. Looks like a killer good time. I'm trying to imagine a route that included all those great trails.

    Who put it together? Do you have a GPS map of the route? Thanks.

    Lynda, checking out your blog. Like KRob, I love it. Set me to daydreaming. Have been to almost all of the places in your "Dixie-Lite" slideshow. Wow, sure need to get back over that way (from SoCal). Don't think I could do it as a race, but it would be fun to do as a fun two (three?) day ride.

    Been following the blog also and did some exploring on the grand view last weekend. Hopefully heading up again to ride cassidy/hancock peak trail

    Rode up right hand proctor canyon and that was a hidden gem, not even on the map
