Autumn on the West Elk trails

Our magnificent Flat Tops Mountains

Our magnificent Flat Tops Mountains

On October 8-9, Tod and Peggy Tibbetts, Bruce Kime and Melissa DeHaan performed fall trail maintenance on the trails, clearing downed trees and brush. The trails are in good condition. The worst are the deep ruts on Hwy 819. We were pleased to see that the repairs to the trail in the gully on Eric’s Loop held up through the spring and summer.

Hunting season is in full swing through November 20. If you plan to hike or bike the trails use caution and be sure to wear blaze orange!

Watch this blog for big announcements in our annual newsletter coming soon!

In the meantime enjoy these photos of autumn on the West Elk trails!
