Horsethief Spring Riding


As we approach the end of winter and the onset of Spring, Horse Thief starts clearing of snow. On Wednesday, we were able to complete the entire loop, with only a couple of sections of walk-able snow. If you ride early, getting off the trail by 10:00 am, the ground is generally frozen. However, three quarters of the trail was completely dry. A few more days of no precipitation and most of the trail might be ride-able anytime of the day.

We rode the trail counter-clockwise, and had to walk the up-hill North facing slopes, including the s-curves or dollar sign. We did about five minutes of walking total.

Remember: RIDE DIRT, NOT MUD. If you’re leaving a track, turn back.
