it seems that some of the lesser quadaphiled trails have been restricted or are still snowed.. jones pass and the like...

Anyone thinking of heading up this weekend? Maybe Friday night/Saturday morning?

Just a chill trip, maybe plink around with my 13yr old. I would like to do chinaman's, but I don't think my full size with no lockers would be ok, not without someone else..

anyone have suggestions? I just don't want to be in quad city....

(the lack of a modded out vehicle really bites sometimes)

Might I sugest Red Sandstone road(fr700). It's on the north side of I-70 near Vail. Piney lake is pretty. The hike/mountain bike to Hidden lake is very pretty. It's US forest. Dispersed camping is permitted. There's plenty of roads to explore. There is spectacular camping with views of Mt of the Holly Cross on fr 734 at the start of the Buffer Creek trailhead.

Argentine Pass is beautiful. we ran into two Quads last Sat and the camping spots were awesome.

...camping spots were awesome.

Any area in particular? I'm looking at heading out there in a few weeks and I've never camped there before.
