Recent Trip Reports

Lockhart Basin 04-29-2017

This was the first leg of our trip including Lockhart Canyon, Chicken Corners, Jackson Hole, Hurrah Pass and Kane Creek. We had a late start so this trail took most of the day. The scenery and feeling of isolation was great! This was our first time on this trail so we didn't know what exactly to expect. Running South to North things are pretty mellow for obstacles until BAM you turn the real sharp hair pin and there are two large boulders there! We encountered some stockish Jeeps trying to back back down the trail as it is quite narrow at this point. Presumably they were unwilling to possibly damage there rigs. We followed them out and headed to The Catacomb Spur to set up camp.

North Sand Dunes Road 04-18-2017

Trail is still impassable by snow between waypoints 5 and 6. We made it though the first drift but only barely. The off camber snow made it a little sketchy but there was enough road exposed to get the outside tires on something solid. Still a fun trail with some incredible views across the valley to the mountains covered in snow.
