TRAIL 422 TO MINERS CASTLE CLEARED WITH NEW REROUTE
Overall fair to good trails, no new snow with trails setting rock hard and flat last night. Trail 422 is now cleared and groomed with a really nice reroute near Miners Castle Road, no more entering where the plowed road ends. Now all we need is a bridge so we can get off of 2 miles of H-58. The CFR land owners opened up an old logging road taking us north 1 mile and entering beyond the plowed portion of road. This should put an end to the vehicles always trying to drive the groomed trail and getting stuck. Keith, Chuck and Bill spent Sunday taking the Bully and a sled up there clearing trees and installing signs. Surprisingly the ground is still not frozen which helped sign installation. Chris then followed up and groomed Trail 422 with the Big Deere and Dubie Groomer. We are still working on Trails 417 & 418 which are in poor condition with downed trees.

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 8 from Shingleton to Trail 422, Trail 422 to Miners Castle.

Today’s Forecast: Flurries, High 23ºF, Winds SW 10 to 20 mph
Currently: 14ºF, Winds SW 8 mph
