    Different meeting spots can be worked out depending on where you are coming from in this thread

    Lots of options for different rigs and interests. Can park and play at the main obstacle or run loops around the network of easy trails in the area.

    Won't be able to make it. Have company coming into town on the 15th and staying through the weekend. Not a big deal, I have only been able to make one in the last 9 years anyway. Have fun.

    Edit: My wife says I donít need to be home that day to visit with her guest. I am a maybe. It will depend on weather.

    If anyone is going from the north this is a nice backway, Platte River road. You get off 285 at South Foxton Road near Conifer, take Foxton for 8.5 miles to it's end and make a left on Platter River road. there is an interesting memorial to a heroic train conductor, an abandoned hotel and some other cool stuff along the way, plus you get to drive next to the river instead of other cars. It ends @19.9 miles in Deckers at the intersection with 67, just a few minutes north of Rainbow Falls.

    Last time I went out there this is what Google Maps recommended as the quicker route as well, so scenic and efficient!

    does anyone knows if FR 351 (Fern creek rd) open from Rampart range rd? I'm not finding any latest info on this. Think of joining the group and I would like to cut across from Mt Herman rd / Rampart range rd to the meeting spot. I hope someone have some info it would be appreciated.

    I contacted the Rangers district this morning and due to Covid they are closed so no way of getting info on Fern creek rd. Yesterday I drove up to Winding stairs rd 323 and I was going counterclockwise until the snow got too deep to get through, there was a Tacoma halfway off the road about 1/4 mile away from the opposite direction. Seeing that and not having any info on 351 I would not try to tackle it. I'll be coming from ColoSpg direction.

    Just ordered my sticker, it's been hinted at online that they'll begin enforcing this in 2021, but IDK for sure. If the sticker doesn't show up in time you can just print out your receipt.

    Iím confused.

    The CPW website seems to say that a plated street legal vehicle also needs an OHV registration. But when I go to the purchase page as directed for a plated vehicle, I see only parks passes for sale. Is a parks pass on a plated vehicle equivalent to an OHV registration?

    Iím also unsure if this requirement applies to any off road use by a plated vehicle or only when operating on designated OHV trails. The FS page says any forest service road...

    Here's a direct link to the registration form if it helps.

    Go here. https://www.cpwshop.com/privilegepos...e17d2cc01ff13b

    You have to click on land & trails, then you'll see the screen below. click on Purchase, you'll get an alert that you need to close, then create an account. It's pretty quick.

    That was helpful Paul, thanks. It was the *NOTE* Registration is still needed that threw me.

    I was really surprised the entire process wasn't digital, but it looks like this method works just fine and all digital.

    Sticker ordered!
