Trail report for Thursday 14 March; Temperature was 21 last night and today’s temps will be in the upper 30s or low 40s F. Hopefully the rain will stay away. Trails are very hard pack, icy, rough and bumpy. The trails soften up during the day but then freeze up over night. Had a lot of overflow show up on the trail on Trapper Lake along with the increasing number of black water holes showing up, as seen in the pictures. So far the trail from Trapper Lake to the Landing is doing good. There is a couple of ice bridges you need to be cautious with but are good right now.
The trail stakes on the South/Deshka trail were pulled yesterday. Overall the trail is going good but the ice bridges are deteriorating, so be very cautious if you venture out on the trail.
Today the trail stakes are being pulled on the Sheep Creek trail.
The trail stakes on the Rabideaux trail and the trail from Trapper Lake to the Susitna Landing will be at a later date – depending on the weather.
