Trail Report: Tie City 5/27/15

I spy with my little eye the first wildflowers of the season!

Tie City

Well, they may not be the first but two weeks of travel have kept me away from Pole Mountain where we typically see the first flowers emerge straight out of snowbanks!

I sometimes forget how lucky we are to live in Laramie where we can drive 10 minutes from town and be right at the Tie City trailhead.

Yesterday our local hiking group met up at Tie City for a few muddy hours of chasing kids down a trail and {failed} attempts to keep them out of puddles and marshes. We saw the first wildflowers poking out of the soil, a huge nest and had a blast.


We hiked along the Campground loop, Alder trail and a few other little spurs, that’s what happens when kids take the lead!

The weather was cool and sunny and it was a beautiful morning on Pole Mountain. Here were the trail conditions.

  • Date: 5/27/15
  • Time: 9-11:00 am
  • Temperature: 45-50°F (ish).
  • Weather: Cool, sunny
  • Wind: Windy at the trailhead (as usual) but calm and peacefull on the trails.
  • Trails Hiked: Portions of Campground Loop, Alder trail and a few others
  • Trail Conditions: Trails ranged from dry to damp to muddy. There were a few patches of snow on and off the trails, but it won’t last long. Trails are hike-able right now, I’d give it a few days to dry out before trying to mountain bike there.
