Weather 61° Sunny

Trail Difficulty: blue

The main loop trail for the Horsethief West trail system.

This loop literally has a mix of everything. Slickrock to sand, forest to grassy fields and possibly even a water crossing or two during a heavy rain. Seldom flat and never in a straight line, the trail winds its way around a large basin west of UT 313. The route drops down several rock shelves and across a couple different drainages before a meandering climb back up the other side. Because of the constantly changing trail and overall length, this trail by itself will be a challenge for some. But by beginning and ending on the Chisholm Trail, this loop can be easily integrated with other trails in the area for a much longer ride for anyone wanting to do so.

Temperatures will reach 61° today, with Sunny. Weather conditions this week are expected to range between 55° with Showers Likely to 66° with Mostly Sunny over the next 5 days. It doesn't look like there's any substantial snow forecasted this week with air temperatures ranging between 55° - 66° over the next 5 days.

Some cold air will filter into northern and central CO to cool the high temperatures Sunday a few degrees. Sunday will see the ridge attempt to rebound back over the area but it will get pressured back to the south as a minor upper disturbance and jet max travel through the strong northwesterly flow aloft Sunday night. .LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday) Issued at 129 PM MST Sat Nov 16 2019 The ridge will build back of the western states Monday and Tuesday in response to the digging trough along the west coast. So Monday and Tuesday will return to warmer than normal. Tuesday night the scenario that has been projected for the last few days should start coming together. A strong trough will move onshore over the Pacific Northwest which will split over northern CA and the western Great Basin. The southern component of the split will form a closed low over southern CA Wednesday morning which will help the cutoff low over the Baja open up and be drawn north and east. The remnant of this feature will spread clouds and precipitation over southeast UT and southwest CO Wednesday morning which will spread across the rest of the area Wednesday afternoon and night. The models continue to show significantly different solutions Thursday through Friday. The GFS opens the big southwestern low quickly and lifts it northeast and over ...
