Spence Mountain Fire Update 8/02/20
A fire was reported a recently near the Spence Mountain Trailhead along Hwy 140. The fire is currently contained and we have been busily working to get the trails open again. South Ridge Trail is now back open for general use. The areas affected by the fire have been bandaged for now as more permanent fixes can’t happen until there is some moisture n the soil again. Lower Hooligan is back open and only had minimal damage. Queen of the Lake is still closed and will for be for a while until we can fix the damage and assess the risks for falling rocks and trees related to the fire.
Spence Mountain: Peak Tie and Spence Peak Trails are open!
The trail work season for Spence Mountain is now over and Spence Peak and Peak Tie are open. Spence Peak adds about 5.2 miles of new trail with a nice climbing route to the top of the mountain – an easier climb than South Ridge. Peak tie is about 1.3 miles long and is a connector from the bottom of the blue portion of Mazama to about halfway up Spence Peak. These trails will provide lots of new routes and loops. The total for the Spence system is about 42 miles now.
