TRAILS – A trail that plummets down from the summit of Mount Spokane has been closed for re-routing and erosion control.
Steve Christensen, state park manager, said Trail 135 is especially popular with mountain bikers, but it’s poorly designed and seriously eroding.
Plans to re-route the trail will make it safer, he said, but the bulk of the work may not get underway until September. The new version of the trail will be renumbered 140 and connect with another reconstructed trail that descends to the Mount Kit Carson Lower Loop Road trailhead.
Another priority project, Christensen said, is widening the nordic skiing trails to accommodate a larger groomer the state park may be able to purchase.
