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 continued working on some new footbridges on Cache Creek between Noker Mine and the Wilderness boundary. We used the griphoist to swing the logs into place which involved some tree climbing and pulley work. The crews then peeled the logs, milled them flat on top, and built approaches to easily step on and off of the bridges. We rebenched several sections of eroded parts of the Cache Creek trail where mud slides had occurred. They also added gravel to the ridge trail with ambassadors Randy and Cam as well as cleared a few fallen trees off of the trails. With the bit of rain this week the trails are in great shape so get out and enjoy the weekend!
