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 finished up the last new log bridge up Cache Creek.  These are a fun endeavor where the crew gets to use the griphoist to maneuver the several thousand pound logs into place, a good physics lesson in action.  We then installed a new culvert on the Phillip’s Connector trail where the Glory Bowl snow melt runs across each spring.  We cleared some trees off of the Hagen and Wilson Canyon trails and will get one off of Phillip’s Canyon.  We also spent some time on the History trail clearing down trees, cleaning drains, adding fill to bridge approaches, clearing culverts on turnpikes, and cutting back the infamous “Nettle Nam” section.  This trail really is amazing and the upper section is a perfect combo of peak wildflowers, beautiful Aspen groves, and dark shady Douglas Fir stands right now.  If you’re looking for a nice hike this weekend to avoid the heat at high elevation this would be a great one.
