Trail Report: Tie City 4.23.15

I thought it was time to hang up our snowshoes and cross-country skis but Mother Nature had other plans.

For that we are thankful!

trail reportTie City4.23.15This morning we headed up to the Tie City trailhead to snowshoe with our local hiking group.

{Insert shameless plug…if you have kids and like to hike and live in the Laramie or Cheyenne area you’re all invited to come hike with us!}

Here are the current trail conditions from the Tie City trailhead. Be forewarned that currently the roads to the trailhead (and the Happy Jack trailhead) have not been plowed so be prepared to park & gear-up on the highway.

  • Date: 4/23/15
  • Time: 9 am-12:00 apm MDT
  • Temperature: 45-50°F (ish).
  • Weather: Warm, bright and sunny.
  • Wind: Slight breeze but nice and windless in the trees.
  • Trails Hiked: Campground Loop (no judging…we were snowshoeing with 7 kids!)
  • Trail Conditions: Deep (probably 2 feet) coarse, corn snow on the trails, more than we expected to see. It was soft, there wasn’t a layer of crust on top of the snow so if you’re headed out bring skis or snowshoes or you’ll be post-holing through deep snow. Naturally the trails haven’t been groomed and very few people have been up there snowshoeing or skiing. I guess everyone is glad winter is over or something BUT this snow isn’t going anywhere fast. Even with this thaw cycle I bet we’ve still got a good 2, maybe 3 weeks of snowshoeing or skiing on Pole Mountain.

What are the other trail conditions in the area?
