Colorado Land Cruisers is heading back to Metberry in April, if Longwater/Hacket are opened up before then we will try and run those instead.. We had a big turn out last time and wanted to invite you guys down again, and everyone is always invited to all of our Trail Runs (http://www.coloradolandcruisers.org/calendar.html)

See the thread below for more info, or to vote on which weekend may work better for you.. ;)

I used to lead these trails before the Hayman fire. it was my favorite close place to wheel

These are just south of cheeseman resevior, but you actually get to the trails via "Westcreek" between Deckers and Woodland park.

Metberry Gultch is the one with the Cabin at the end of the trail next to the River (very good fishing and a great place for a hike). it used to have an interesting hill right at the bottom for a stock vehicle called Chicken scratch hill... the rest was just a fun drive in the woods. We actually saw a pretty beat Volvo station wagon back in there one year :eek::eek:

The Gultches in order from Westcreek are Northrup, Metberry, Longwater,and Hackett.....

We used to love going down Hackett, Crossing the river to the west side, and then crossing the river back east a little further down to come back up Longwater glutch.

If we don't go with the guys from the springs, we could still make a run. I would love to get back in there to see what it looks like now

When we went there last fall we passed Hackett and what I assumed to be Longwater before we got to Metberry. The cabin is gone at the bottom of the hill, but the hill is pretty interesting with the intimidating rock slab about halfway up.

If my cruiser is ready this would be a perfect shakedown trip. We'll see. :eek:

Sounds like you guys came in from the south side. It is probably quicker to get there from the other north side for those of us that come from Denver or even further north..

We are going back on april 16th if anyone wants a quick shake down before moab!

We go in on the south side because most of us are from down in the springs! hope to see some more RS guys again!

Trevor, is the standard meeting place the Western Gas Station on the east side of Woodland Park at 9? That's I think the time and place where we met...
