Spence Mountain Trail Run 30k/50k Saturday 5/18/19
The Spence Mountain 30k/50k run is coming next weekend. This run will start/finish at the Shoalwater Bay TH. The most active times are from 7am to mid-afternoon. The trails are not closed during this time but we would ask that you use the Hwy 140 trailhead and that you be respectful of the racers and give then the right-of-way during this time.
Spence Mountain 2019 Trail Building Underway
This year’s trail building at Spence Mountain will include an additional 4-8 miles of trails to come. Trail building is now underway. The new trails will include:
1) Queen of the Lake (Black Diamond): This trail starts at the Spence Mountain TH and goes along the shore of Howard Bay toward the north. This trail will be relatively flat, but will still be difficult to ride and to build as there are a lot of rocks (understatement) along this steep stretch of real estate. The views from this trail should be very nice.
2) Winema (Blue Square): This trail will be extended down the mountain toward the lake to meet up with Queen of the Lake, providing another connection from the south side of the ridge to the north side.
3) North Star (Green Circle): An easy trail that will make an easy loop in the central portion of Spence with the existing Modoc Tr. This trail may or may not be built this Spring depending upon how difficult building Queen of the Lake becomes. It may have to wait until fall.
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!
