Trails and Powder in Willow. We have all but Rolly Lakes Trail groomed.
Great riding for Family’s and Power Hounds alike!!! Iron Dog starts this weekend and the Su 100 will be in the area on Sat. and Sun. Willow has the best access to the rivers from Rolly Creek trail. Overflow should not be a problem by the weekend as cold temps are freezing it up fast. No new snow this week.

Remember: We Take the Bumps So You Don’t Have To!!!!

Deshka Landing river report–2/8/19

As we head into the weekend we have received mixed reports on conditions. Grooming of the overland trails and the main trail out Rolly Ceek have been conducted after the twelve or so inches of fresh snow this past Sunday/Monday. Expect to break trail to the more remote areas and conditions should improve as more people head out this weekend. Overflow conditions are deep in some areas especially off the main trails on the rivers. The Deshka River has lots of overflow and with the warmer weather it will take time to set up. Freight hauling is not recommended unless you can verify the local conditions to your destination and we do have some overflow in the launch. The brown stripe in the launch is a pretty clear sign that things are a little loose on the river. Irondog starts next Sunday morning at the landing and we will be posting updates as we get closer to the race. Parking Sunday morning for the race start will be $5, gate will open at 8am for race viewing, please consider car pooling as we will fill up fast. The regular rate of $10/day will be in effect if you are heading out onto the trails or pulling a trailer.

Mid-Valley Trail Report–2/8/19

Trail report for Friday 8 Feb: Temperature is 24 F with cloudy skies and no wind. This past week the trail from Trapper Lake to Susitna Landing, the North/Rabideaux trail and the South/Deshka Trail all got packed and groomed. The trails are soft but are in great condition for riding. All the trails are having some overflow showing up, so be careful and if in doubt, please check these spots out before crossing. With the mild temps for the next few days, these overflow spots will not be freezing solid overnight. I broke down the snow crust in these spots while grooming and with some colder temps they should freeze solid. Enjoy the trails and be safe out there.

Susitna Gauging Station (Trail 6) north to Scary Tree–2/2/19

Rode it yesterday—single lane UNMARKED snow path  on the Susitna River from Gauging Station (Trail 6 river crossing)  north to Scary Tree,  no issues and smooth but unmarked; no stakes— not known to be safe.  To access the Yentna River, probably best to take Willow Swamp Loop Trail south from Deshka Landing area a few miles then follow signs for Rolly Creek Trail cutoff (signs)  to access the junction of Susitna and Yentna at Scary Tree.  Deshka Landing reporting overflow issues going south on the “Coral Hill Trail” (on the Susitna River to Scary Tree) this past week.
