Crossroads Trail12/14/2018 snow: Sisters Ranger District Reported by: STA
I took advantage of a break in the weather to hike the trail which is now
snow free and actually starting to thaw out, so, is mushy in spots. There is
one downhill section on the west side of the trail that is getting pretty badly
eroded and will need some serious water diversion work, mostly drain dips
being built. Otherwise, the trail is in excellent shape!
Cultus Corral5/18/18 Bend-Ft Rock Ranger District Reported by: OETWV

trees. Trail work is complete.

Dutchman Flat winter XC ski trail3/7/19 snow: Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District Reported by: CONC
There is no sign directing skiers onto the connector trail from the
Common Corridor at the west end of the tie trail. There is a sign on
the east end at Jct 71. Adding a sign at the west end would likely
reduce instances of skiers getting into the area that is supposed to
be exclusively for motorized traffic.
Edison snowshoe Loop2/21/19 snow: Bend Ranger District Reported by: CONC
We went out with FS sawyer Chase Kleint and cleared 16 logs, most
of which were on Light Bulb Loop. There were a few deep burials that
we chose to leave as ski-overs to be dealt with in less snow, and
there was one large log with an easy ski-around that we chose to not
attempt to cut. Otherwise trails are in great condition at present.
Elk Devils Tr #129/15/2016 snow: Bend Ranger District Reported by: SWATS
Trail Work is complete.
Fall River Trail #222/6/19 snow: Bend Ranger District Reported by: HCFV
There was a second significant windstorm in less than a month on 23
January 2019 so we walked the Fall River trail from the campground
to the farthest east parking area, approx., 2.5 miles downstream
looking for wind fall. We found at least 7 trees down. Two were small
(7" diameter or less) and were removed. Not removed were two about
8-12" in diameter and several larger trees in a group with significant
branches completely blocking the trail for 30+ feet. It's a big mess!
Luckily they are quite near an easy access point.
The trail has a layer of ice on much of it and that ice is now covered
by a few inches of light snow. Traction devices e.g. Yak Trax, are
recommended for boots.
