Argentine North Fork Trail

Over the last week I have been up and down the Argentine North Fork Trail three times. It is in fine shape. There are a couple of very small snow patches, but they are disappearing quickly. While most of it is dry, there are some wet spots. As you travel the trail on foot or on bike, be sure and take it easy through the wet spots. The road from mid-mountain to the Summit is also mostly good for hiking and riding. During and immediately following the snow melt is time to be an extra good steward to the land. Walk and ride gently and don't be afraid to get off the bike for the wet areas.

The trail was designed by Joey Klein from IMBA. He also did much of the construction and taught our crew how to do the rest. I can't thank him enough for this A-Basin gem.

This trail looks awesome. Where is the trailhead and is it free?

The trail starts at the end of the black top in the base area and it is free, and really cool.

My husband and I hiked this trail today. The flowers were out and the streams flowing. We stopped at the lodge for a snack, using the lodge picnic tables, then continued up the service road to the patrol hut where we had lunch. This was our final hike before heading back to Texas and it was a good one!
