Jerry Bourn Trail

Want to try a scenic backcountry ski / snowshoe trail that isn’t too long and isn’t too far? Check out the Jerry Bourn Trail. It starts a very short distance out the Hannegan Pass Road. Park at the turnoff for the Hannegan Pass Road (where you need a USFS pass) or at the Salmon Ridge SnoPark and walk (carefully) across the bridge. The start of the trail is just past the very obvious rock cliff on the left side of the Hannegan Pass Road. You can’t miss it! 🙂

When you get to the end, you can explore the Twin Lakes Road, go down to the highway department and walk back (carefully) on the highway, or turn around and go back the way that you came.

So who was Jerry Bourn? I don’t know much, but he was an old-time mountain man who lived in the area, passing away in 1980. http://www.dev.preservewa.org/counties/whatcom/
