    Default More NoCo trails opening up!!!



    Pearl Beaver and lower deadman near red feather are open! Add that to Johnny park and pole hill and we have some stuff to do up here. Really wish Kelly flats and moody hill/crystal mtn would open this year...

    Any word on sevenmile? I remember hearing that one of the local groups was going to try and show that there was no flood damage through pictures.

    Our pictures of sevenmile didn't go too far but they said that there isn't too much that needs to be done to get it ready (fencing off a mud puddle). I told the ranger that perhaps I could walk the trail and take photos but I haven't found time to do that just yet. Perhaps in the coming week or two.
    I don't know anything about jenny creek, sorry Sam. Never even been up there, pretty cool?

    Where is it? Been checking canyon lakes, clear creek and boulder canyon ranger district sites and jenny creek isn't listed on any of those (that I saw).

    Gilpin County. X2 on the bumpy road, I air down before then.

    Here is a trip we made last year. The first spot in the mud I believe is a place you are not supposed to go anymore though. Too much mud was being swept into nearby stream. I could be wrong though it was out first time up there and I believe we got lost.

    The only problem with me is that I don't know for sure when my days off are if it's going to be following a trend this summer it's safe to assume Fridays and Mondays.

    Well feel free to start planning threads or pm me when you know, I keep a watchful eye on this forum. How far in advance do you get your schedules? We will make it happen, don't worry about that. My schedule is wide open, I just need time to let the wife know she will have the kids (unless she comes with me).

    Upper and lower deadman are now open near red feather! Good exploring, camping and moose viewing up there.

    sounds like a backway to the sand dunes run should be doable shortly!

    Looks like storm mtn just opened! Looks like we definitely won't see sevenmile, Kelly flats or moody/crystal this year.

    I wanted to go check out the Moody/Crystal road, but could not get to the road. It is blocked at Masonville and only open to the local residents that live on that road. So, it looks like my favorite roads will not be available this year.

    And this... I went alone a weekend or so ago. It's open. I pruned back several trees.

    On the eastern side of the trek, FS200 iirc, is a two lane, pothole free, freshly graded FREEWAY. I had to catch myself to slow down (was pushing 40MPH in stretches).

    Awesome!! I really want to go in or out that way. Since there are no YES' except me I'm going to cancel the Sept 6 Tincup run and change it to the dunes.

    There seems to be a decent volume of forest service / logging roads on the eastern side of the ridge. One could spend quite a time driving around up there.
