    Default New Years day? Run anyone?



    So it's been quite a while since I've had the chance to get out with you all. It has become a tradition of sorts for me to go on New Years day.
    So I thought I should see if anyone else is interested????? Not to particular on the location. But it would be nice if there was camping available
    just in case I decide too stay the night. Hope all is well with everyone. David

    Last year we ran Schubarth loop. It's a great trail but....... I have ran it several times. I would love a suggestion as to something new that's feasible for a day run.
    I wish the gulches were still open. We did them about three years ago on New Years and it was a blast. Thanks for your interest.

    I may be interested in going. Father in-law keeps asking me to take him wheeling.

    Low maybe for me.

    A different Christmas this year - unknown what I'll be doing (I won't be in Illinois though).

    Quoted Steve-O ; Bummed I'll be out of town this year. Last year was a blast!

    Yeah it was! Probably one of the best group runs I've been on. It would be nice to do something different. Every year we go to the same places, ie; Bunce-Yankee hill-Switzerland-Schubarth- Gulches.

    Open to suggestions? Maybe something central. I really don't know of any other trails. It has been snowing in the mountains some.
    I Really wish we could run. Slaughter house gulch?Bummed I'll be out of town this year. Last year was a blast!

    I'm in. There it's still a possibility of day trips around the rampart range area, with lots of camping possibilities.

    I went over Hoosier pass today and unless there's more snow between now and new year's, many trails should be possible on New Year's.

    If Weston pass is open, that's a nice drive over the trail from fairplay to Leadville then about 90 minutes back to Denver.

    So are all the Gulch trails currently closed? I know about the pending litigation by Predator 4wd. I did see some trail reviews on AllTrails where they ran them last month?? Been out of the scene for 2 years and love the Gulches, especially in winter!

    Well we are getting some much needed snow right now, just pulled in 30 minutes ago and a couple inches already! I donít think we are supposed to get a lot but we desperately need moisture thatís for sure, so bring it on Mother Nature!

    NYD is on a Saturday this year so Iím not sure how far from home the wife will let me go but Iíd love to run on NYD this year if possible. Iíll keep watching this thread 😎

    The Gulches are open according to trailsoffroad and they are pretty on top of all closures.

    Good news for some snow! Congrats on a safe return.

    Snow bashing at Rock Creek in the future???

    9:37a now - FoCo had some very light rain / mist an hour ago - enough to wet the pavement but now things are dry.

    The wife and I tried heading down to Boulder just now and didnít even make it a mile before we turned back to head home. Visibility right now up here is ZERO! Blowing snow made it scary as can beÖ. Not worth our lives to make it to the office!

    I'm very tempted to just do Schubarth loop again? Unless I can find a better option? A couple years ago we were able to run Bill Moore
    Lake before it got socked in. Could that be a viable option for New Years Day? or are they getting enough snow to make that impossible?
