*WHITE MOUNTAINS TRAIL REPORT*Sounds like it’s time for a fatbike ride up in the Whites!
Shared from BLM-White Mountains National Recreation Area Nov 13 White Mountains trail conditions update. Yesterday the BLM trail crew took advantage of great weather to break the Wickersham Creek Trail and Fossil Creek Trail. They reported plenty of snow and good trail conditions as far as Beaver Creek. The river crossing in front of Borealis-Le Fevre Cabin had some overflow and open leads, but the crew found a place to cross. The snow got thinner between Beaver Creek and Caribou Bluff, but there was enough snow to cover the tussocks and make for decent trail conditions. The crew turned back right before the start of the Caribou Bluff Cabin spur trail, where they encountered considerable open water at the Fossil Creek crossing. Today the BLM crew is planning on breaking the Colorado Creek Trail.
According to a report from the public, the creek crossing on the Bear Creek Trail still has open water that recently stopped one group from reaching Richard’s Cabin; that trail is not recommended until decent ice develops on the creek. All creek and river crossings should be approached with caution at this point in the season, when thick ice has not yet formed.
