Trail Reports

  • Joe Myers May 21, 2017 at 4:35 pmThat's the spirit!
  • Ryan Pedersen May 21, 2017 at 4:31 pmTread is now 100% snow free! Just couldn't let them stay til June so I went out and shoveled them :)
  • Joe Myers May 18, 2017 at 11:06 pm99.9% snow free as of today according to COTA trail adopter Todd Wells. Only a patch at the very top
  • Dave Sparling May 14, 2017 at 3:37 pmRode from the Wanoga parking lot yesterday - the first 1/4 mile still has deep drifts, some of which are ridable. After that first part, the rest of the trail is completely clear.
  • Eric Kutter May 11, 2017 at 3:54 pmWalked from Wanoga this morning. First quarter mile was about 50% clear, 50% snow drifts up to 18" deep. Almost totally clear from there for the next 3/4 mile. Not sure beyond that but From Dave's report probably not bad.
  • Dave Sparling May 10, 2017 at 7:09 amI rode up from the bottom as far as the section of fire road above the slalom part. There were only a few rideable snow drifts on the trail. Above this is high sun exposure and not a huge elevation gain - I didn't ride it but I imagine it is probably mostly clear. We saw one tree down on the fire road above where we stopped - but nothing on the trail below.
  • Nat Chotechuang May 9, 2017 at 4:46 pmThe snow is all gone from the advanced line near the bottom (the section with the multiple sequential drops right before you get to the Funner/SK/Tiddly confluence point). Now we can hit those drops with reckless abandon.
 

Trail Description

Funner is an enduro-style trail in the Wanoga trail system that gets pretty heavy shuttle traffic in the summer. You’ll find lots of techy rock outcroppings, drops, log rides, log drops, and line choices for miles of smiles — it really is one of the Funner trails around. There is a section near the bottom that is one-way down with lots of drops (in the video on this page) and if you’re climbing, the uphill route will take you through some rocky and challenging terrain.

The uphill and downhill trails merge and split several times on Funner — so there are areas where all riders need to keep an eye out for two-way traffic.

Due to the number of splits on this trail — it’s easy to feel slightly lost at times — but the trail parallels the highway, so you can’t get too off track.

The bottom of Funner terminates at the junction of Tiddlywinks and Storm King and there are plenty of ride options to ride out from there.

  6. Ryan Pedersen says:

    Riding well from Storm King to NF-4613. I turned around at the first large snow patch shortly there after.

  7. We climbed up the trail for about a mile before hitting some snow patches. The ‘rocky’ downhill part at the bottom still has lots of deep drifts to negotiate. Maybe one more week.

  8. Natalie Herse says:

    A few of us fatbikers packed down the tread from Wanoga to the green gate. Untracked 3″ new snow at the top, 1/2″ at the bottom. Fantastic!

  9. Joe Myers says:

    3+ trees cleared + various leaning trees from Funner between log ride and 4613 this morning.

  10. Alex Marganski says:

    Tree down right before the log ride drop one also before that in one of the Y sections.

    1. Shane DeMars says:

      Yep, total of three down right now. All are between the 4613 crossing to the East and the large log ride to the West.

  11. One small tree down yesterday right before the log-ride-drop just uphill from the NF-4613 crossing.

  12. Natalie Herse says:

    Climbed up Funner today. Hero dirt with insignificant snow patches as I got about 1/2 mile from Wanoga snopark. Some standing water from melt off. 2 trees down on lower Funner (but looks like one got cut out today?)

    1. Joe Myers says:

      Left one unfortunately. I hear it’s above 4610. I removed the one below 4610

  13. Joe Myers says:

    cleared a tree on lower funner near 4610 close to FUNNER sign

  14. Jane Quinn says:

    Today some customers reported snow starting half way up Funner and on Upper Tiddlywinks.

  15. Travis Holman says:

    All clear from Wanoga down!

  16. Nick Skinner says:

    Riding well from the slalom down, only snow is right at the bottom of the slalom.

  17. Joe Myers says:

    Thanks Todd Wells for clearing Funner from 1613 to the Tarmac. Now you just need to figure out what he calls the Tarmac.

    1. Todd Wells says:

      Trailhead to Funner Flats
      Bermming Man aka Slalom
      Cowbell – someone stole the cowbell
      Betty Berms
      Tarmac – pavers, rock drop zone
      Octa-log
      Spring board – 90′ log used to have a spring in it! Also hear it called “Boner”
      Invisa-log
      Normans Knuckle and Funner Canyon intersection
      then done!

      Enhancements and new drains in the flats, Enjoy!

  18. Ryan Brown says:

    Funner is ripping all the way up to the log drop just past Grey Rd. after that quite a bit of dead fall and choppy snow

  19. Rode the bottom of Funner yesterday. The rocky black diamond part at the bottom still had some decent snow patches. Didn’t go higher than 4613.

  20. Joe Myers says:

    Oh man that music in the video sucked!!!!
