About James’s Loop

James’s Loop is the snowshoe loop. It has not been fully tracked yet this season.  With close to 5 feet of snow in the woods, no hardy souls have trekked around the whole 3-mile loop.  Bruce Kime and a couple other people have tracked the trail from Hwy 819 down to the the turn at Mansfield Ditch Trail.  So James’s Loop has been tracked to that point. Tod Tibbetts tried to take the Bearcat grooming sled down Hwy 820 toward the Cowboy Camp Cabin but wasn’t able to get through the deep snow.  If you venture out on James’s Loop, make certain you know the route because it is not fully marked.
