In order to better spread out trail users, provide a more enjoyable experience for everyone recreating at Happy Jack, and reduce user conflicts, MBNA believes that packing the “multi-use” trails (MUT) quickly after each new snow storm is the best approach to getting trail users the experience they are looking for. In addition to just being packed through regular use, the MUT system also currently gets packed through the efforts of many volunteers on snowshoes.
MBNA is authorized under our agreement with the Forest Service to do mechanized packing of some of the MUT system and is working to move in that direction. Details are still being worked out and information will be posted here as soon as it is available.
In the mean time, those interested in assisting through snowshoe packing are encouraged to do so. There is a publicly viewable Facebook page athttps://www.facebook.com/groups/1511946465726245/ that posts trail conditions and packing priorities for those interested in helping out on foot.
