Ridge to Rivers

Trail Condition Report

THANKSGIVING DAY TRAIL REPORT: It should be a good day to get out to burn off some calories either pre or post Thanksgiving dinner. This morning you should have your choice of trails because of the low overnight temperatures. There will likely be some slick spots where yesterday’s snow either got packed or melted and froze overnight, so be cautious in those areas. Yesterday afternoon there was still snow on the ground in areas sheltered from direct sun and those are likely to be icy this morning.
It is forecast to be sunny this afternoon so with moisture on the ground some exposed areas as well as south facing slopes will soften up and turn muddy. After about 11:00 am or noon you will want to stick to sandier or all weather trails. Good to be off the trails that traditionally get muddy by then. Some trails will look good at the trailhead but will be muddy further in so be prepared to turn back if you start picking mud up on your shoes or tires.
TABLEROCK TRAILS: Tablerock trails are open this morning.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Trails!
