    FWIW - Kingston Peak has some options for where to meet and how much other stuff you want to combine with it. Kingston Peak specifically is the trail from Alice to Mammoth Gulch to the north near Tolland, CO. I've run it both ways - probably prefer running it northward from Alice, but that also means you have to give right of way on the shelf road section which can be a bit crowded. Neither of these endpoints are particularly close to Blackhawk, but the trail combines nicely with various sections of the Yankee Hill Network and can be completed as a loop from Central City/Blackhawk using the Apex rd (among some others). For those that trailer their vehicles - there is good trailer parking near the CC cemeteries in a designated area.

    Based on feedback/recommendations, we'll run from Alice/St. Mary's.

    I'm hoping to be there. Still waiting on my stupid spacers for my front outboard shock mounts. May just make a run to HD/Lowes and see if i can't come up with something.

    Last year we ran Yankee hill very early in the year. Some talked about
    Kingston peak which was enticing. It will be nice to join in on this one!
