Trail Conditions for 6-24-22
Another busy week on the trails. We hired a crew from the Montana Conservation Corp who are helping to get Teton Pass open. We cleared down Black Canyon and History Trail and will be hitting Ski Lake and Phillip’s Pass this weekend. Black Canyon had just a little bit of snow left near the summit of Mt. Elly but was in great shape otherwise. We also cleared some of the user created trails in the nordic corridors at the base of Black Canyon. What we are calling the OPR Loops will be reviewed by the USFS this winter to see about adopting them onto the trail system, but in the meantime they make a nice quiet series of loops on relatively flat terrain. We then switched gears and hit the infestation of musk thistle in Game Creek to prevent it from spreading further onto the forest. We also had a great group of volunteers from the Teton Trail Runners who helped us install some stump seats at the Ferrins saddle for a well deserved rest after that climb. Finally we cleared some newly blown down trees on West Game, Wilson Canyon, and on the Cache Creek Road. If you see any new trees down after a wind storm use the trail maintenance request button to let us know about them and we will get out to clear them. Enjoy the warm temps and clear trails this weekend!
