Trail Reports

  • Joe Myers December 7, 2016 at 9:16 pmRode up to the road today from the bench. One rider had come from the road all the way down which sort of helped. It was nice down lower but once in a bit it gets deeper and deeper and harder to ride. It's consistently about 10" or more around half way to road and in some places (no tree cover) 50% deeper. With the amount of walking we did and the depth of the snow it's pretty brutal and I'm not sure our line is all that follow-able.
  • Colin Mcvey December 3, 2016 at 11:27 amGreat on a fatbike, rode it up and down 2 of the last 3 days. Currently 2-6" over hard pack. Too deep for skinny tires.
  • Bruce Bradshaw November 9, 2016 at 5:05 pmNo deadfall.
  • Jason Gockel October 31, 2016 at 5:17 pmTree down about halfway. Right in the area where there seems to have been many deadfall in the past
  • Dustin Balderach July 29, 2016 at 4:55 pmno trees down just a little dry
  • Kerry Witterschein May 15, 2016 at 12:09 pmCompletely snow free and cleared from the deadfall to the shooting star shelter. Trail is beautiful right now! Perfection. Go!
  • CJ Myrick May 1, 2016 at 8:08 pmForgot to add, if you go up FS 4615, you're mostly clear up to about FS310, then you start hitting some snow fields. Many you can ride around but there are few you might need to walk.
 

Trail Description

Upper Whoops runs from the intersection of Lower Whoops, Phil’s trail, Skyliners, Pinedrops and Rd 310 up to the Shooting Star shelter and the start of Sector 16.

The climb can be a little brutal depending on how far down in Phil’s you started. This trail can also get pretty blown out on the lower sections as the steep terrain makes for some speedy downhill action.

While Upper Whoops is a two way trail, when you’re climbing keep your ear buds out and pay attention for downhill riders — they are naturally going to be moving very fast.

  7. CJ Myrick says:

    Several small snow fields and a few downed trees. Most of the trees have been cleared, but there are still a few smaller ones that are leaning over the trail making for low clearance.

      Forgot to add, if you go up FS 4615, you’re mostly clear up to about FS310, then you start hitting some snow fields. Many you can ride around but there are few you might need to walk.

  8. Aaron Altier says:

    I rode up and cleared the first two downed trees, but before I could ride much further I encountered a large field of snow.

  9. Natalie Herse says:

    Made it up Upper Whoops about 1/4 mile before we turned around. Probably could have gone farther but the snow patches got closer together and a few trees were down.
