Jordan Hot Springs

Postby RoguePhotonic » Sun May 11, 2014 5:22 pm

Just got back from doing trail work there. The road over Sherman Pass and to the trail head of Jordan should be open in another week. The crews are still working on the roads.

It was very light patchy snow at the trail head and in for the first mile. Other than that it was very nice to be out.

We opened the trail to the Kern and when I left had removed 80 trees from the Red Rock Meadow trail. Hopefully the crew that was left will finish the log out and brushing so that trail is open again. It has been closed for 5 years now and I could hardly find it.

Yes, Thanks for all the hard work. I amongst a lot appreciate the unsung heroes and why I blindly defend the Pamanmint debacle last year. :moon: *hats off to you* All done for the long term good preservation for all concerned even though they did not take it that way; your heart was in it, and I applaud it.

Thanks for the trail work. My wife and some friends will be headed for Jordan HP this weekend. I had a buddy that did the RedRock loop to Jordan HP a couple years ago and said it near worked them to death getting around and over the trees.
