    Default The Gulches - Metberry 4/28/18



    Got a trip down Metberry today. Nice weather. Trail was actually in decent shape. The Funtreks book really talked up the Chicken Scratch Hill section. Not too difficult, just requires low gear/lockers, patience, and a good line. Had no trouble at all. Some washouts in places made it interesting. Couple of groups were camping at the bottom. I wish I had taken more pictures. I did not get to the other gulches.

    I have seen on other threads say to take the day (or two) to do all three gulches (http://www.frontrange4x4.com/forums/...-Gulch-1-20-18) which I agree with. Metberry was fun but probably the easiest of the three. Also, not an ounce of cell service in that whole area so make sure you have MVUMs or offline maps. Lots of side by sides in the area too.

    Fun run (with two friends) in the X. I recommend it.
