Jordan Creek trail washed out

Postby bryanaverill » Mon Nov 30, 2015 12:10 pm

Was riding yesterday and hit a major wash-out along Jordan Creek. There is only 6" of trail left and it looks like it wont last much longer. It would be a bummer if this trail dissapeared since it provided a southern connection for the loops we ride in this part of the OHV area. Is there a good detour? Does Morrel's Maze go all the way to Jordan Creek Trail?

The group I was with ran into that yesterday as well, we all walked our bikes across the section, by the time we got the last bike through there wasn't much of anything at the thinnest section and the rear tires barely made it across. Reid is aware of it and its on the list of things to get fixed asap.

Morrel's does go to the top of the road, same with Doughboy but to archers, though both trails are not something to be riding up.

Yep. That's what I'm talking about. We rode across carefully.

So, does Morrel's connect between Jordan Creek Trail and the road, thereby cutting off the washed out portion of Jordan Creek Trail?

Yes, but it should be downhill only.

Sorry to see this. One of my favorite trails in the system.

Just an update on the Jordan Creek trail washout. Jahmaal, the operators, and I took a hike in the area earlier this week, and with the help of our computerized mapping system, we think we have a pretty good route in mind to bypass the blown out section of trail. It will connect the upper section of Jordan Creek Road and the current trail. It will bypass about half a mile of the current trail, but the new section is half a mile in itself, so overall, there should be no loss of trail distance.

In the meantime, we have trail closed signs posted at both ends. Hopefully that will keep people out until the trail is back open with the new rerouted section complete.

Good news. It's the first trail I found when I was new to the area and still one of my favorites. Any estimate of completion time?

We are waiting for our final meeting with FEMA before we get approval for the reroute. Unfortunately, if we do the work before their approval, we wont get funding for the project. It's a messed up system when it comes to this type of situation, but those are the rules. We hope to have the approval in the next month or so.

The new Jordan Creek re-route is in and open if anybody wants to know. Went to investigate it today and it was a nice surprise. Thanks ODF and anybody else who revived this valuable trail.
