HIKING, HORSEBACK RIDING
The Northwest portion of the Blue Range Primitive Area where this trail is located has been severely affected by the Wallow Fire of June 2011. The area is currently open to public use and entry – HOWEVER trails may not have been recently assessed or maintained for hazards associated with the fire, so plan your trip accordingly.
Please keep in mind that any area affected by the wildfire can be prone to hazards such as falling trees, flooding and burned out stump holes. The environment you are entering is highly susceptible to rainstorms and wind events. Any time you enter the forest, you should be aware of your environment and changing weather conditions. You are responsible for your own safety! Always look up, look down, and look all around.
This is the trail head for the Horse Ridge Trail # 38, which joins with Foote Creek Trail # 76 at its terminus and access to throughout the northwestern Blue Range Primitive Area via links to Tutt Creek Trail # 105, Red Hill Trail # 56 and Grant Creek Trail # 75. See the web page for each of these trails for more information.
