Trails closed in Wenatchee and Okanogan Nat. Forests

Recommended Posts

Mudding:

Normally, this issue would be talked about much later in winter or early spring, not in early February. However, due to low snowfall this season, we are already beginning to see resource damage on National Forest Land trails and meadows. Don’t believe the TV ads; it is illegal to drive through meadows and forest riparian areas.

Motorized trails:

Attention all off road motorized trail riders: Trails are not accessible at this time. Trail damage is already occurring to National Forest motorized trails by those that are riding during this wet and warm winter season. Obey road closure signs and please wait until road and trail surfaces are dry and posted open.

Sharla, did you get the information from Mikki? I have had several people ask me about the Taneum Trails because of the abnormally low snow fall. Jay actually drove up there only to find they had made a huge snow wall on the road at the Rangers cabin.

He then found a fire road which he drove to the top above the cabin and said there was no snow in sight. We have been trying to figure out why they put a snow wall on the Taneum road. Several years ago now we had another abnormally low snow and we were riding by March. :cry:

Hmm, low snow, might be able to ride at Cashmere now??? Cashmere was always the first place to thaw out in the spring, Tronson Ridge has a seasonal closure but the lower trails did not, at least didn't used to.

Even if there is little or no snow, it can take awhile for the soil to settle back down just from the frost heave... Until then, it can become a real mess quickly. With no snow to help pack it down, this could be the reason..
