    Default Epic powder

    I bought your Trail Map. Parked at West Gate and rode the groomed trail down to the Willow Big Swamp. My first time there. Wow, incredible, soft, forgiving, deep, untouched powder! We rode until we were exhausted. Really nice having the groomed trails and markers to get back to one's rig after and fun day of powder riding/exploring. Thanks WTC!

    Thumbs up Where?

    Now if you were in the Willow Swamp it's about 2 miles out from the parking lot. Or did you get out to the Big Swamp about 8 miles out? Willow Swamp is about 2x4 miles big. Big Swamp is 3x12 and runs down pass Iron Dog Trail!
    TONS OF POWDER!!!

    Default Big Swamp

    I believe it was the Big Swamp--6-8 miles from parking lot and just West of Red Shirt Lake. Will you guys be grooming those trails again anytime soon?

    Thumbs up Grooming

    Normally we groom Big Swamp Trail on Monday. What day were you out there? And yes that is the Big Swamp. The best riding is down on the lower end below the Fish Creek Trail!

    Where do you park to access all the groomed trails you're talking about? Anywhere to stay (cabins) out that way?

    Default Parking!

    The Main parking is at Westgate Center off Crystal Lake Pkwy. Also at the Community Center. Pick up a map at the local store and it has the parking areas on it along with the trails.
    Want to know about places to stay PM me!
