11 New Miles of Trails at Spence Mountain
The trail building season is over for 2018 at Spence and we have almost 11 miles of new trail in the central section of the Spence Mountain Land Tract bringing the total up to about 28 miles. These new trails are best accessed from the Shoalwater Bay TH off of Eagle Ridge Rd. Old Eagle Trail is a 1.6 mile trail along the lakeside going north and east of the trail head and is family friendly. Shoalwater Tr goes from the south side of the Shoalwater Bay TH and goes about 3 miles to the eastern end of Old Eagle Trail. It is also considered and easy trail. Modoc Trail is an easy trail about 2.5 miles long extending from the mid-point of Shoalwater trail (Junction 7). Captain Jack Trail is about 3 miles long and also extends from Junction 7 and extends up onto the ridge to connect with existing trails (Junction 5). This trail is more rocky and technical and thus is considered blue (more difficult). Winema Tr is also blue and extends from the end of Modoc Tr up to Captain Jack Tr. These trails are good for walking, running, and riding. Trail signs will be going up soon to aid in navigation.
Now Online: The Official KTA Meetup Group
We now have an official KTA Meetup Group. This site will be good to centralize KTA sponsored events such as maintenance days, KTA events and meetings. One stop shopping for all things KTA.
News Tidbits Page
We have added a page that contains news items that are useful , but maybe not worthy of posting here on the top page. These items will include things like trail conditions reports, upcoming events such as trail work groups, or just items of interest to trail users. I will try to keep it up to date and informative. To access this page click on the “news/images” tab above and go to “news tidbits”. Stay tuned for more exciting details as they become available.
The KTA works with a wide range of public and private groups and landowners to acquire trail right-of-way, build and maintain trails, and promote enjoyment of these natural resources!
