Maybe we should plan a run to Metberry Gulch. It's open (http://www.predator4wd.com/halomegu.html). :)

And Hackett might open again soon. Since that was one of the first trails I ever saw pictures of on the Rising Sun website, I would love to go do it when it opens!

What's the source for buying those books direct? I hear you can get them spiral bound...?

I bought mine through Amazon...cheapest place I could find. I've never seen a spiral-bound version but I would buy one if it was available.

What's Metberry Gulch like? It happens to be right down 24 from me.

EDIT: This site says they are the only ones to offer the spiral-bound version... Funtreks Guide Books (http://www.funtreks.com/index.php?page=spiral)

Funtreks is the source. Charles gets more of the cut that way, and yes, the spiral bound version is way handy.

So those who've been to Hacket, Longwater, etc. - do you go to Florrisant, turn north on Hwy 3 and then go from there? Man I was WAY off when I was looking for Hacket without a map...:rolleyes:

Kinda down in the same area is a trail called China Wall right? Anybody been there?

state association store has them for sale. best part, is you don't need to worry about shipping since the store manager can deliver to rising sun meetings ;)

They don't look spiral bound on the CoA4WDCi site (http://www.hightrails.org/store_wells.html). Is this an option?

I thought the only way to buy them spiral bound was from the FUNTREKS (http://www.funtreks.com/) site. $3 EXTRA

You can take the normal version to Office Max and they cut it and do a sprial binding for $5.
