May 7th: The trail is free of snow

We visited Myra Canyon on May 7th. The Little White Forestry Road was in pretty good shape – a little snow in a few places. The trail from Ruth Gate to Trestle 8 is rough due to the rock scaling underway and lots of equipment in use. The Instagram photo shows the rock scaling crew just before Trestle 8. There are also numerous places where there is standing water from the spring melt. From Trestle 8 to the Myra Gate the trail is in better shape although there is still standing water in places. There were no trees across the trail, but several trees leaning overhead. Please follow the rock scaling crew’s instructions for your safety if you are passing through the area being worked on.The Myra Forestry Road is mostly fair, however there are two areas that have has wash outs.
