School Bus Trail

Trail Meter: 

School Bus Trail is open during the West Mag logging closure

Please note that the southern boundary of the closure is "north of National Forest System Road 105.1", meaning that School Bus (Bus 'n Shack) will still be open and accessible from the south, via the Rollinsville/Shoshoni Meadow and/or the Forest Service Work Center climb.

Good about 1/2 up then snow

condition set to Poor

Still snow



Wind blown drifted snow with bare spots. Could ride about 1/2 of the time, had to push and post hole in the snow about 1/2 the time. My buddy's fat bike only helped a little.

6" of snow with a decent packed tread. More snow bikes please come pack this down.

Little bit of packed snow here and there. Otherwise the trail is in great shape.

Lower sections are great. Some snow at the higher altitudes, and in the shade.

Conditions as of sunday 11/3. Snow, ice and mud in the upper sections, before the first short climb. Then short stretches of ice and mud in places. The road route to the top of School Bus had too much snow to ride in some areas.
