This Sunday, Feb 16 we’ll meet at the Waterford trailhead at 1 pm. To find this trail, take Goldstream to Waterford Road. If you are coming from Ballaine road, it is about a mile past the fire station; turn left. From the Steese it’s about 2 miles from the transfer station. Take the road up the hill to a parking area just around the corner where Waterford meets Molly Road. (Don’t park right at the trailhead.)
The trail is a gradual and not-so-gradual climb up to the pipeline. From there we can either ski the pipeline, take a run down Eldorado Creek trail, or head up some of the mushing trails that parallel Old Murphy Dome Road. This will be an out-and-back trip. It is a good trail for one dog or a mellow two dog team, and you’ll be equally unhappy at times with either classic or skate skis. There will be hills. If you’d rather ski without dogs, feel free to join us.
Trail tours are free to ASPA members and $5 for non members.
I’m setting the cutoff a little lower than usual as we’ll be in higher ground – if it’s -15 at 11:30 at the airport (call 458-3745 ext 1113) we will cancel.
