I was talking with Sean from the Forest Service (Amador district, 88 side) and we are now just waiting of hydrologists approval of the remediation to reopen Carson Emigrant National Recreation Trail (17E24), Hungalelti Ridge Trail (aka Squaw Ridge trail 16E26), and the Long Valley Trail (17E28).  These were designated as part of the Amador High County Route Project to secure funding for the repairs and to lump the repair work together.

Give how late it is in the season they may not reopen until after the winter closure is in effect (similar to how they did with long canyon) but it may also be posted right away much like strawberry was once the work was completed.  I will post up when I hear anything.

We have un-official conformation of hydrologist approval this morning.  Public announcement of the trails reopening should be Monday assuming the forest supervisor doesn’t come up with a reason to delay. (16E26, 17E24, 17E19 and 17E28)

Kris,

Depending on how long these trails have been closed, has anyone maintained these trials, as we have Strawberry? If not, does this need to be done before one can navigate through?

They had equipment come through to do the work so I dont imagine they need any clearing, if anything they would need rocks put back.  As we do not have an agreement for that trail we would have to work with a club that does have an adopt a trail agreement.  I will see if I can find what clubs have adopted these trails.

OK, I was just curious if, by opening, that the conditions are conducive to just heading out on one or both of these trail without concern of it being navigable. Sound like a trail run may be in order to find out! Thanks Kris…
