Construction of the Haul Road is going to start in the next few days out at the Washburn Silent Sports Trails area. The road extends from Trout Creek Road through the forest using existing ski trails and exits on Washburn Lake Road. Users of the ski trails may encounter trucks hauling gravel and compacting the road surface. Mountain bikers will cross the road in three places, with the busiest place to the south of Stone Soup where you will follow it for approximately 75 yards towards the exist on Washburn Lake Road. The trail does not change in this area, it will just be finished with gravel now and not bare dirt. The attached map illustrates the route. It is anticipated construction will be done in a week or two, depending on weather.
