Recent Trip Reports

Little Creek Ridge 05-27-2017

We ran Little Creek Ridge on Saturday, May 27, 2017. The weather was partly to mostly cloudy with scattered thunderstorms, a couple of which caught us. The trail was open the full length with no issues to report. The rain and light hail made conditions wetter than usual with more frequent puddles to splash through. Since most of the trail is decomposing granite, the wetness did not make things significantly slicker.

Turkey Track Road 05-27-2017

We ran Turkey Track Road on Saturday, May 27, 2017. The weather kept alternating between partly cloudy and thunderstorms with rain and light, slushy hail. They have redone the entrance to the trail making it more direct instead of curving around as it used to. There was a fair share of shooters in the informal target range but it was not as crowded as it sometimes gets. The trail was wide open all the way through with no issues except the recent rain made the big hill a little soft and slick. One of the stock Wranglers with us needed a strap to get up, the other made it under its own power. The views were magnificent, as always.

Turkey Track Road 04-29-2017

Turkey Track Road has reopened according to the fire's blog. Update 4/19/2017, pm The Turkey Track fire is now 100% contained. The area is now open to the public for recreation. We ask that the public stay out of the burned area for their safety as there is still a risk of trees falling, hot stump holes (holes where stumps are smoldering? and rolling materials. There is sill the possibility of smoke to be visible in the interior of the burn which is to be expected as we are allowing the interior hazardous fuels to burn naturally. This is to reduce the risk of severe injury to a firefighter by a falling tree. If you see smoke in the interior of the burned area, please do not call 911 to report. We ask the public to please be aware of the continued fire danger and consider not shooting on hot and dry days as well as having a fire extinguisher on hand when you do any sort of recreational activity that poses a fire risk. http://psiccfireinfo.blogspot.com/
