New Source for Current Trinity Alps Trail Conditions

by John Soares on June 16, 2017

I’ve just provided a 2017 update to my Trinity Alps trail conditions post. The main upshot: it looks like there will not be weekly updates of the PDF file that had been created by Jim Holmes of the Weaverville Ranger Station for many years. (Jim retired.)

Instead, you can get recorded information by calling 530-623-2121 (press 1), and you can also visit the Trinity Alps Wilderness – 30th Anniversary Celebration on Facebook. In addition, there’s a new trail and road conditions report: read it here.

Would you happen to know the current snow condition on the Bear Lakes trail? I’m anticipating snow at the lakes this time of year, especially due to the winter we had. If not, then I’ll call the 530-623-2121 #

Tim Sims, author of the ebook My Trinities, went a few days ago and posted about it on Facebook. He encountered only a little snow on the way to Big Bear Lake, with the lake itself about one-third frozen. We have a big heat wave now, so I think the trail and lake will be clear soon, probably by this weekend.

Have fun!
