    Default Clohesy Lake Saturday August 7th



    Clohesy Lake
    Saturday 2/7 10:45am

    We'll meet here in Leadville at Dutch Henry Tubing Hill. It's a dirt lot at the base of a cleared hill, across from a car wash. It's also right behind the "Leadville Sanitation District" building at 911 US-24, Leadville, CO 80461. It's right next to part of the Mineral Belt trail.


    Lots of water crossings!

    Since it's a short trail, we could also hit Halfmoon Creek afterwards - I believe it opened up last Sunday! I'd do the easier side which goes towards the old mining mill. Folks with more built rigs wanting to go rock crawling can hit the harder side if they want to. If it is closed still, I have other trails in the area in mind.

    Considering it. It's a long drive, but might make it.

    If any of y'all wanted to camp out, my wife and I would probably join you. She's been wanting to go wheeling and camping. If Halfmoon Creek is open, I know there's a nice campsite overlooking the valley right next to the mill we could head to after Clohesy, otherwise Clohesy has campsites or we could camp along one of the Fourmile trails near Buena Vista.

    Missouri, Oxford and Belford all 14ers are right there if you want to do some climbing. Did all three the first time up there.

    Travel time to the Leadville meetup spot is about 2 hours 15 mins for me. I'll plan to leave around 8 and likely caravan with Ty who lives nearby. Hoping to be there between 10:30/10:45. Barring some major breakdown, we should arrive close to the scheduled time.
