    Default Anyone been out Eureka way lately?

    I have been hearing all kinds of conflicting stories and was wondering if any one has been out riding Eureka way. I heard they fixed most of the trail that was tore up in the fall from the heavy equipment, another about something at Grandpa creek another one is a change to the road at Monument. So if anyone has some good 1st hand info I would like to hear it.

    Also anyone know if they got that Unimog out?

    Me too - I'm hoping to head that way Sunday with the little kids, so I was hoping the trail was in good shape!

    Went to Eureka on the 21-23. The water was as low as I have ever seen it this time of the year. We found a couple of new trails and ended up at American gold mine. Just a new way to get there. It was dry and dusty. The main trail is in good shape. Have a safe trip.

    Thanks for the report...sounds like the mess that got left before the snow flew may have been cleaned up some. Good to hear about the rivers being down some.

    AlaskanSD you make it up there Sunday? Will likely head Monday or Tuesday.

    Yes - we did go riding yesterday! All the trails are great, dry, and dusty. Water crossings are low. Saw a couple caribou - overcast in the morning, then got sunny about 3pm!







    Have Fun!

    Just got back from Eureka. Trails are dusty, but the rain today helped knock some of that down.

    Water crossings are as low as I've ever seen them. Crossing the little Nelchina could be done in knee high boots if you picked the right spot.

    Caribou here and there, not a lot but some to view.

    Bugs weren't that bad at all.

    Have fun and be safe out there!

    The trails are in great shape, water crossings are low now, and be prepared for lots of dust on the main trails out.
