2) Grooming by your winter team has produced a great community recreational area from the Jamison Road off A-14 thru Campground to Museum for x-country skiers and snowshoers . Because of the sloppy conditions, the Road to Campground from Museum has been closed do to** Avalanche Danger*** below is a sample of conditions on these trails that is published on Web site and Facebook by Ken McMaster every time the trails are groomed to keep visitors aware daily conditions in PESP.
Plumas-Eureka Trailhead: CLOSED DUE TO AVALANCHE DANGER…WILL REOPEN WHEN CONDITIONS ARE BETTER
Bear Scat Flat: CLOSED, as it is within the Plumas-Eureka system.
Lower Campground: OPEN- GROOMED, no set track.
Upper Campground: OPEN- Groomed, no set track.
Camp Lisa: CLOSED…A large tree/downfall is across the downhill portion of the Camp Lisa Trail, preventing us from grooming it. We’ll remove it as soon as personnel and conditions allow and then reopen the trail.
Harper’s Way: OPEN- Groomed, no set track.
Jamison: OPEN- Groomed, no set track.
Dog Trail: Groomed, no set track. One mile out and one mile back trail. Poop station located near start of trail. Please pick up after your dog.
Snowshoers: the trail system is wide, please stay to the complete opposite side of the groomed trail (not down the middle). Thank you.
***NO WALKING ALLOWED ON THE TRAILS, PLEASE…IT RUINS THE SKIING AND MAKES GROOMING MUCH MORE COMPLEX!!!
Reminder: Please do not park in front of the Jamison Trailhead area or block the access to the Dog Trail…really makes grooming difficult, if not impossible…Thank you.
