Additions

Disco Hill and Barracks Lane Trails have seen some improvements during 2013.

The Rippey Loop has a new bridge (installed by the neighboring rancher!) and a couple of reroutes. There is a short reroute around the mud patch at Rippey Spring, dry this year but is usually an obstacle course of logs and rocks.  There other reroute is about 1/4 mile long and adds some climbing to get around the new fence that cuts off the old trail.  Check the Rippey Map below and the photos for details.

Disco Hill has more substantial improvements.  First, the trailhead will be getting a new map very soon to replace the old one destroyed by summer cloudbursts.  It will show three trail additions to the Disco Trail System:  Slump Ridge Trail, Powerline Trail, Spare Rib Trail.

On top of this, the Enduro Trail has had its northern two-track section (aka BLM Road #126) replaced with singletrack! Check the Disco Map below and the photos.

The Slump Ridge Trail and new portion of Enduro Trail both had trail crews improve the tread over the summer. They are riding nicely but need more tires to break them in.  We are currently installing trail markers so be patient (or let us know if you want to join in).  Powerline and Spare Rib are cow trails right now, awaiting improvements...they will get posts after these improvements (again, let us know if you want to join in).
