SCE Ride to Willow Park
Wednesday, January 13, 2021, 11:00 AM
Registration is not Required
There will be a club ride this Wednesday, January 13, to Willow Park. The ride will leave from South Fork's Willow Park Trailhead #1. Please be ready to ride at 11 a.m. Bring a light snack for the trail, water, and your avalanche equipment. Tim McAlester will be leading the ride. Those that want to can join in a late lunch at one of South Fork's restaurants; Tim is looking into which one would work best for the group.
Directions to the Willow Park Trailhead #1: East of South Fork 1.6 miles on Highway 160, turn right on USFS Road 345 (at Tiny Timbers). There is a parking lot about 200 yards up the road.
Curtis Miller's trail report says USFS Road 345 is groomed to USFS Road 350 2B to Willow Park 350 is also groomed. Good snow up high. Thanks Curtis.
An update on our trail system: All trails are groomed and marked except Snow Mesa. Bob finished Love Lake last week. Thanks Bob.
Eleven club members enjoyed the ride on Black Mountain this past Saturday. Terrific snow in the big park on top. Use caution at the second creek crossing. It doesn't look like a big waterway but it will swallow a snowmobile. Next time Bob does Black Mountain, he'll make some trail adjustments to ease the creek crossing.
I'm planning a ride for this upcoming Saturday, January 16. Stay tuned for further details.
