Anyone ridden Surveyor's/Dog or 15 mile Creek this season yet - general conditions?
As of Wed. the woods were patchy w/ snow so ????trexnfx said:thanks for the update. I would guess it wouldn't be to bad especially with the warmer weather the past week.
In this state, if you wait for an organized club to maintain a trail, you may never see the work done.smaledog said:You mentioned you'd be brining a saw. What's your protocol on doing the trail maintenence yourself or are you affiliated with PUMP or Merry Cranksters? The last two seasons, I think I was one of the first on High Prairie / Lookout Mt. trail and I cleared a few smaller downed trees with a hatchet. Yay or nay on this approach?
One good thing about the lack of snow this season, while my season pass to Meadows was pretty much worthless, at least my favorite trails will be open earlier.
Lots of rain on both Fri and Sat. just washed away all the great conditions in the lower trails. Synchline was still in very good condition inthe lower section on Sat. Sun. we did Surveyor's - fair amount of blowdown but soil was great until the bottom switchbacks - will probably get up there to clean it out this week if I get some time. Dog river was in very good shape with only a couple of blowdown.bjsid said:any update on the conditions on saturday in hood river?
