Happy Friday Parkites & visitors to our little mountain town. It’s the 14th of July and summer is whizzing by…
The monsoons keep threatening but just aren’t willing to cough up any much needed moisture, so things area a bit dry, dusty & loose out there. Keep that in mind as you’re rolling or running into switchbacks, as terra firma might not be so firma and the trails are a lot more susceptible to user-created erosion damage.
A couple noteworthy NEW trail updates-
The crew finished a short, hand-built connection between the Silver Spur/Spiro intersection and Dawn’s trail. This will provide a more direct access to Dawn’s for hikers coming from the base of Park City Mountain.
The new “PorcUclimb” trail- a directional, “uphill only” for bikes offering, is complete, albeit pretty dry & loose. This new connection climbs from Seventy 101 up to the high point on Nowhere Elks. This trail is slightly wider and at a more moderate grade than Rambler. It will provide our adaptive cyclist friends at the NAC a more user friendly uphill option as well as a great hiking and running alternative in either direction.
Jumping from the high desert in Round Valley to high alpine at Park City Mountain- we’ve begun work on a new connection between the Shadow Lake trail and Scotts saddle(the bottom of Puke hill). This trail will provide a really sweet alternative to the loose & rutted out double track that we’ve been using for 30 years to access the Crest.
To quote a classic movie line…Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Have a great one out there!
