TRAIL UPDATES

Friends of Pathways has a formal partnership with the USFS to collaborate on design, construction and stewardship of local trails for all users – hike, bike, horse, and ski. We’re committed to providing easy year round access to trails in order to maintain our high quality of life in Jackson Hole.

This week the crew started on the new Game Creek connector trail.  This trail will connect the Game Creek trailhead to the S. 89 pathway and will provide safe access from the neighborhoods along S. Hwy. 89 to their public lands without having to take a trip in a vehicle.  We hope this will help alleviate some of the parking issues at the Game Creek trailhead.  If you are out in the Game Creek area and would like to help we have a cache of tools and instructions at the western end of the trail and you are more than welcome to stop and dig for a little while.  I highly suggest mornings and evenings as our crew was baking in the sun last week on the south facing slopes.  Our youth crew has one more week of work and we will see if we can finish the stretch on the BTNF.  The crew also worked on the Phillip’s Pass and Arrow trails this week cleaning drains and fixing tread.  On Thursday they helped the town relocate the Rodeo/Pine Dr. Access trail.  The trail was created by users over the last two decades but was actually on private property slightly to the west of the access easement.  They brushed back the the larger trees and willows and re-dug it about 8 feet to the east.  The Phillip’s Ridge and Snotel trails are opening back up now that the thinning crews have finished chainsawing in that area.  I suggest heading up there this weekend as I imagine a byproduct of the thinning is better views of the mountains and valley!
