Trail Updates from Friends of Pathways


July 6th Report

Below you will find today’s trails and pathways report for Jackson Hole. Friends of Pathways and the Forest Service have trail crews out on the systems daily, working hard on trail maintenance and construction. Friends of Pathways also works with Jackson Hole Community Pathways and Teton County Parks and Recreation to ensure pathways are swept and safe.

Trail Report, July 6, 2011
Greater Snow King Area/Munger Mountain Area/Teton Pass Area
Last week Friends of Pathways’ crews fixed several problem areas in Game Creek, moving the tread higher where the beaver pond had risen, and building a bridge to replace the flooded crossing just below the West Game junction. The Forest Service crew was off last week (they work 8 days on and 6 days off).

Friday Morning Volunteer Days in Cache Creek continue to be successful – thanks to all who have come out to work!  With volunteer help and that of Operation Purple- a military service group from Teton Science School (pictured above) – the new “Wiggle” trail connecting the Cache Creek Sidewalk to Putt Putt is now open.  It offers a great beginner loop from the Cache Creek trailhead that is approximately 3 miles long.

The Greater Snow King Area trails are all open and in good shape. There are still a few problems in West Game where reroutes are needed as well as one seeping section of the Game Creek trail that users should go around.

Munger trails are all open and rideable.

Lower trails in the Teton Pass Area are open, but mid and higher elevation trails still have many sections that remain under snow, and/or have trees down yet to be removed. The Arrow Trail is nearly snow free until the corner towards the SnoTel area where drifts persist. The Ridge Trail is drying out from the Fish Creek side and offers a nice out and back. Jimmy’s Mom is in good shape for the downhill bikers, just be advised to be cautious of up hill traffic on Old Pass Road.

Teton Freedom Riders are hard at work rebuilding the Powerline Jumps. This is not finished, but TFR encourages those interested to go over and check out the progress being made.

Notes:
Please beware of wildlife and early season conditions on all trails – carry bear spray! A cat (mountain lion) was spotted on Linda’s Trail last week. Baby moose are now appearing in the lower Teton Pass Area. Please use caution as Momma Moose may not be in the mood to deal with you or your dog.

Pathways Report, July 6, 2011
All pathways are open and in great shape! Two new bike corrals were put in place last week – one at Betty Rock and one at The Wort Hotel!
The fence on Garaman, where it comes to Gregory Lane has been fixed. Parks and Rec is sweeping the system today and tomorrow. Friday they will be focusing on the line-of-sight trimming on Hwy 390.

Pathways will remain open during construction/maintenance, but users should exercise caution when passing through construction areas. Users should remember to keep their dogs under control – dogs are required on leashes within the Town of Jackson, pick up after their dogs using mutt-mitt bags, and place the used mutt-mitt bags in the trash cans.  Walkers, rollers, and riders should stay to the right, allowing two-way traffic, announce their approaches from behind, and signal all intentions, including changes of direction. Finally, please remember motorized vehicles are not permitted on the pathways.
