Just over a week ago the Chuckanut 50k trails were littered with downed trees. On the $2 Trail alone there were 5 trees that stopped me in my tracks to climb over and get going again. As of Saturday the trails are cleared/passable. There was a huge tree down on the South Lost Lake trail that Cascade Mountain Runners Dan and Kevin were able to limb and clear to make passable. The Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition made short order of the trails on the ridge. Washington Trail Association were out in force March 8 and Larrabee State park organized crews to clear $2 and Chinscraper (aka Black Diamond). Incredible like-minded people working to keep the trails usable for all.
The ridge is slippery and technical as always, but the trees are clear reducing your number of obstacles. Fingers crossed for zero winds this week.
Huge Thanks to all of the hands that rallied to clear Chuckanut Mountain of the downfallen trees. Chuckanut 50k runners are ever thankful.
