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.
Another busy week on trails, the crew cleared Arrow, Snotel, Ridge, and upper Phillip’s Canyon so those should be good to go for the weekend with minimal snow left in a few spots. We will be up working on Ski Lake, Phillip’s Pass, and upper Black Canyon next week. We installed a few more bike racks at trailheads and pathway destinations and worked with a great volunteer groups from the Teton Science School. They installed some stump seats at the top of Josies for people to take a well deserved break with a view. Fun fact since 2003 Friends of Pathways has hosted 65,000 hours of volunteers focused on the trail system. Thats the equivalent the USFS hiring an additional 63 seasonal trail crew members. So a huge thanks to groups like TSS and other local organizations that come out to help on trails, we couldn’t do it without you!
