    Default Wed (7/21) or Thurs (7/22) this week?



    My weekends are pretty busy, so trying to find a weekday run (and avoid some of the trail crowds)....Anyone looking to get out on Wed or Thurs this week? Open to trail suggestions...some that come to my mind:
    1) Red Elephant/Bill Moore
    2) MSV/Coney/T33
    3) Bard Creek/Democrat Mountain

    cheers....

    Hmmm - Option 2 on Thurs could work for me.

    That always seems to be a popular one around here....I've never done T33, so that would be interestingly new. Thurs is probably the better day for me as well (Jen might have some input on that first)...let's see if there is any other input this afternoon/evening and maybe finalize plans then.

    I'll have to pass on this even though I would like to join. My age is catching up with me. Totally exhausted today after yesterday's run. Probably would not be up for the cleanup run if I joined.

    Just got word Thurs works well...T33 is good - and whatever else in the area might be reasonable but I don't need a super long wheeling day. I'd most likely be coming up from south on 119/72 from Nederland. Probably meet at Peaceful valley campground? As its a weekday, doesn't need to be super early, but would rather not get stuck in traffic on the way home either. 9, 9:30, 10am?

    10a @ Peaceful Valley would be my pref. Home to trailhead is 2 hours.

    Reviewing assorted GPS track logs - without stopping it's about 1 hour Peaceful Valley to T33 site (and 1 hour back out). Time spent at the site is up to you (I've been there).

    FWIW - T-33a intersection with Bunce to Bunce north trailhead took 49 minutes one run. Same T-33a / Bunce intersection to south trailhead / Peaceful Valley - 9 minutes.

    Your CJ-5 will have a BREEZE with the tree zig-zag section

    that is a bit further than i would have thought for you...I am 1.5hrs, but I usually allow for 2hrs to that area given gas fill-up and slower than average driving in the old jeep. 10a is good. After we are done running, we can see what we have time and interest for. I'll post up on the calendar...

    "that is a bit further than i would have thought for you...I am 1.5hrs,"

    Your comment bounced around my mind for a bit...

    "Upon further review"

    I looked at the GPS tracklog - I do not understand why it is a 2 hour trip. I had a 17 minute stop in Lyons but otherwise it was simply unusually slow. I plan for a 45 minute home to Lyons / Sandstone Park (no stops) and that GPS log 1 hour for the stretch.

    Another GPS log shows shorter travel - 1:15 to 1:30 home to Peaceful Valley.

    Do you want to meet on the highway (ample parking space / wide roadside) or near the trailhead? I recall a parking spot about 50 feet before the trail / in the campground.

    I'd probably suggest pulling in to near the trailhead by the campground...but good with either.

    K - I'll go to the spot near the trailhead. It's a weekday - it should be clear / not packed.
