Trail Conditions for 6-21-19

The longest day of the year should be the warmest right?  With cool temps the trails are still in great shape and slowly melting out.  Most of the south facing trails on Teton Pass are good to go but there are still drifts lingering in the north facing trees.  The Teton Freedom Riders are having […]

After a snowy week we finally got some sunshine today and have a few more trails open and dry that were in the winter wildlife closure zones that opened up on Wednesday.  Crystal Lite and Crystal Butte are both good options in the sun as are the first parts of Putt Putt and the Sidewalk.  […]

Trail Conditions for 4-26-19

So the record February snows set trail season back a bit this year.  The only things that are dry on the national forest at the moment are the Nelson Knoll Loop, and the first mile or so of Game Creek.  In some of the shadier areas you can hike and post-hole on snow but please […]
