XC Gneiss Creek (24 miles, +1500', tenative date)

  • Gallatin Valley Mall

    2825 West Main, Bozeman, MT (map)

    45.672462 -111.074600

  • Gauging interest.

    Unique opportunity to see a fresh burn scar in winter. Should make for some spectacular photography.

    XC down Gneiss Creek trail to seven mile bridge and back along the Madison River. If it's safe to cross the river anywhere, we'll shuttle from West and it will be a bit shorter. Otherwise, XC up the river until it goes under 191 and shuttle from there.

    Another route is back to West via the west entrance road but I think avy danger and standing dead from the Maple Fire at seven mile bridge will make that too dangerous.

    I'll scout this in early February and firm up the route. We really need a deep snow pack for this to work.

    I scouted the 1 mile connection trail to Seven Mile Bridge a couple of weeks ago. It's got trees with flag branches 30' up, tons of standing dead, and all the fallen trees are pointed downhill. Looks like an avy nightmare so we won't be going that way unless the snow pack is beyond perfect...

      Probably no need. I'm sure he'd follow you anywhere without a thought. I'm sure I'll have to put a limit on this now that you've joined!
