A rainy and cool week has slowed the trail drying process. You can get a little farther up in elevation on sunny slopes without trees, but these same sections tend to get more rain and become muddy more quickly than trails under tree cover. The lower portion of Ferrins is in good shape and Hagen is starting to dry out up to bridge 2 but it is pretty snowy beyond that. The USFS crew cleared Munger this week and found it in good shape with only a few lingering snow drifts. They also completed more work on the Josies steps to try and shore up the most eroded sections of trail. We worked with MBT as well this week on a new bike park by the Blair Community Gardens. The track is close to done but needs a few sunny days to dry out after all the rain this week. When open it will be geared more towards kids on strider bikes and alleviate some of the congestion at the bigger park. If you are looking for an adventure there are also some fun trails down the Snake River canyon at lower elevations. Check out the Dog, Cabin, East Table, and Wolf Creek trails as well as some of the scenic trails down to the river. It looks like the sun comes out for the weekend so get out and enjoy!
