You may have noticed some trail names and junctions changing in Cache Creek this summer.  This is part of a larger signage project Friends of Pathways is working on with the Bridger-Teton National Forest.  One of the first parts of the process was to simplify trail names, especially connector trails, and to consolidate dog leg trail junctions into simple 4 way junctions.  With help from volunteers from STIO and Lillard Flyfishing over last weekend we were able to finish one of these reroutes on the Ferrins/Hagen/River trail junction.  If you take a look at the map above you can see the old names and alignment and the new, the main difference being bringing the River to Hagen Connector Trail and the Tiny Hagen trail together at 1 junction and renaming all of this the Ferrin’s Trail.  We did this for 2 reasons, one being the surplus of trails with Hagen in the name (Hagen, Hagen Highway, Hagen River, Tiny Hagen) and the other being that Ferrins is one of the more popular trails and finding it was difficult as it used to start miles up from the trailhead through a combination of junctions.  So get out for a hike or bike and try out the “new” 3.36 mile Ferrin’s Trail.
