Early trail scouting

rivercrossing.jpgIt’s definitely not the normal trail riding weather most of us enjoy, but plans are being firmed up for this year’s Chief Joseph Trail Ride. Like many of the rest of us, folks in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana are experiencing a chilly “spring”.

Kevin Pullen, ApHC trail/distance coodinator, and I toured the gathering site near Lolo Hot Springs yesterday, then made our way through some possible campsites for later in the week near Florence and Stevensville. The specific route through the Bitterroot is being worked out, depending on landowners and how well the various trails actually connect.

This particular photo is looking West at a likely crossing spot of the Bitterroot River on Day Three of the ride.
