    Default 11 Jun 21 -- Miller Rock



    Alright everybody! Thanks to all the awesome help/suggestions I was able to get from you all I think this plan is finally firmed up enough to post (to those who asked, yes we are looking for company!). I'm operating on the assumption that Pole Hill will still be closed, so we will hit Miller Rock and more than likely follow that with the northern section of Switzerland Trial, hitting Cliffhanger 2.0. Exact meeting location place/time TBD..I need to read up on Miller Rock

    We will be on FRS, ch 6. CBers can do as they please!


    Does 10 am work for those who wish to join?

    I'd be a maybe.

    Here are some meet spot suggestions (there is no perfect spot for this trail)
    1) Google Map

    2) Google Map

    3) Google Map

    4) Google Map

    The first two are nice and close with little traffic. The third is a bit farther away with zero traffic and a large area to meet up. Their detraction is the "swing wide left for the tight right right turn into the driveway". Tight enough that not engaging 4WD until on the trail is a thought. The fourth has ample room for meeting and airing down but then it's a bit of a drive to the trailhead and dealing with cross traffic on Hwy 7 - though the turn into the driveway is quite easy.

    I've never been on a run to this trail where we parked on Riverside near the turn-in (for an easy left-turn in). It's a somewhat narrow road / concerns for blocking / causing hassle for the locals.

    Nice, I'm always up for a run in my neck of the woods. 10am means I don't even need to get up early.

    10 am meet at https://www.google.com/maps/place/40...4d-105.4535309 wheels up at 10:15ish

    Calendar event: https://www.frontrange4x4.com/forums...=2021-6-11&c=1

    After we do Miller Rock, we will head to the northern section of Switzerland trail starting at Sawmill road and try and hit Cliffhanger 2.0. Depending on time we will continue down south, this part of the trip is pretty flexible and people can peel off as they please.

    Yup, we would be on Peak to Peak for 8 miles. Probably fine to stay aired down if we go slow enough, but we can do what people want to do
