Re: Trail Conditions 12-30-09
Well me and the wifey took our first ride of the season in the Straits Area trails yesterday. It was very cold, below zero when we left around 10 am. Warmed up just a bit in the afternoon, still in the single digits.
Had a very nice ride with sun shining most of the time.
Trails are fair to good at this time, snow is thin on the RR grade between Castle Rock Rd and Moran. North of Moran the snow is deeper, and the RR grade is fine.
The lower loop (Castle Rock Rd to Pipeline to Borland rd) is in very good condition, with a little sand mixing on the pipeline, but you can ride off to the side of the groomed trail to avoid this.
I took a few pics of where the trail stop is located, loggers clear cut the area to the north and south of the trail stop. Attached are a few pics below. There is about 10-12 inches of snow in the woods here.
First pic shows the trail stop, notice all the nice pine trees are gone.
2nd pic shows looking south of the trail stop.
Bottom pic another view looking southwest of the trail stop.
Oh and if anyone lost their kitchen chair, we found it LOL
