TRAIL CONDITIONS: Everything is good to go! We are in full summer riding glory here in CB. The recent moisture has been great for the trails and the flowers. It is as good as it's going to get right now. When riding in July, remember it is monsoon season, so the earlier you get out the better to avoid the afternoon showers. If you are heading out in the afternoon, be prepared for wetting rains/hail and beware that the temps drop fast when a cell moves in. Also, we had a big winter, so please be very careful crossing deep rivers/creeks. Please email us any trail updates if you see anything of note out there. Happy riding!
UPCOMING TRAIL WORK DATES FOR 2014:
July 31st Baxter's Gulch August 22 & 23: Overnight party and work, campout. Baxters Gulch Trail. Sept 27-Doctors Park. National Public Lands Day
RENO FLAG BEAR DEADMANS: The Gunnison Ranger District has recieved a grant to build a bridge with the help of CBMBA, Gunnison Trails, the county commissioners, and motorized groups over Cement Creek. Bridge construction will start in this summer, 2014! Until the bridge is finished the stream will be a ford, and could be very high this summer with the huge snowpack that will be melting back. Reno will also be recieving heavy maintenance from the Forest Service crew also with the aid of grants from the State Trails Commission.
CBMBA helped obtain a grant to get the FS crew back this summer to finish work on Trail 409, 405 decommission (replaced by Point Lookout Trail,) finish Block and Tackle Reroute. Thanks Matt, Greg, and the RAC committee.
Cement Mountain and Rosebud Trails are closed October 1- June 15 to motorized users for wildlife protection.
