Is Edison/Lava clear yet? It's a late start this year at elevation, and I am all too familiar with dead fall on this trail early in the year.sans soucie said:It's not cleared of logs yet. You probably don't even want to attempt it because the number of dead and dying trees in there is substantial. A typical year we cut about 50 trees off just the Lava side.
That said, if you do go, please report back so we know how much chainsaw fuel to bring... :thumbsup:
You mean in the last four days? I'd guess it's not clear yet.gregoryb02 said:Is Edison/Lava clear yet? It's a late start this year at elevation, and I am all too familiar with dead fall on this trail early in the year.
How about Sparks/Lava... is this ride-able yet? Who is responsible for clearing these trails, or is it a volunteer thing?
Don't thank me yet!gregoryb02 said:Dirt Farmer -
Edison/Lava is a go... I just did a quick ride Thursday 7/15 and had no problems. Numerous trees had been cleared, and I only had to get off my bike three times or so for logs/trees which could not be ridden over (love my Mojo w/2 ring set up and bash guard!). Due to time constraints, I only hit the Edison side up to the spur cut off (BTW... there is a massive fallen tree right before the spur which completely blocks any existence of a trail). The trail was the typical loose, rocky, more sand than I have seen in several years (but not bad), and lots of pine cones. It has not been ridden much... but this is what I like about this trail!
I am going to try to do Edison / Lava all the way to Sparks Lake trail head and back on Sunday (44 miles +/-)... does anyone have any word on the Sparks / Lava trail conditions?
Thanks for clearing Soucie!
