Whiskey Run Trail Conditions

11/6/17:

I am working on GPS maps for the new Whiskey Run Trail system and was out today, cautiously, on a fat bike. I will have a map posted shortly.

I want to say I'm so impressed with the build-team for the phenomenal work they did on such an incredibly, well-draining, and sustainable trail. I only encountered a few "problem spots" as well as a falling tree, which I informed Ptarmigan Ptrails about. I cleared the Hollerback Trail (main loop accessible from Whiskey Run Rd. parking lot) and a few other trails such as Dirty Dishes (Josh's Trail that runs to lower parking area) and Well Shot (Jason's Trail) of downed branches and debris from the recent rain storm.

I'm giving the Yellow Signal that for today and tomorrow (11/6-11/7) the trails can be cautiously ridden on a fat tire or mid-fat bike without much issue. The upper trail that runs through blacklock soils (tentatively called Captain Blacklock) is a bit wet in areas and I suggest a no-go on that "out-and-back". It is the newest addition to the system so it makes sense that it isn't quite solid yet.

We have a forecast of over 9" (seriously!) of rain the next few days starting Wednesday. Please avoid the trails after Wednesday's oncoming storm and give significant time for drying if the weather ever clears. Will keep you updated.

For now, go out cautiously, knowing it's still soft in some areas.

Thanks for the update, and all the trail work that people have put in.  I'm looking forward to the gps map, but will stay off the trails until they're green.  Maybe next year!

Trails are holding up nicely. Fat bikes work best out there. There's some slick areas and puddling in a few places. The new lower trail called Captain Blacklock is still really wet and we advise to not ride that trail. Be sure to join our club to help us maintain and keep this system in tip-top shape.
