St. Vrain
 
Thinking about another snow run up St. Vrain/making it an annual thing...with chains & a saw this time. After all, we drove away with a lot of new stories! Probably be around the same time Stan does the "Run of the Gulches" although I'd like to make his run this year.

Have you checked if that area is closed? Both seasonal and flood closures in effect for a lot of areas.

Right now I'm targeting Nov 9 or Dec 12 for Run the Gulches. I'll probably skip Metberry this year because I heard it was repaired/filled in and that makes it just a regular drive.

Probably Hackett and Illinois Gulch to up the fun factor.

First I've heard of that. I'll have to check that out. Metberry was definitely getting to be the most difficult of the gulches trails, that'd really be too bad if they graded it. Nature was doing an exceptional job of keeping the wreckless idiots and shooters out.

Some friends were just down there. Nothing more than a regular drive. I thought Hackett was the more difficult of the two last year, but I also heard that it was closed for a short time this summer? Not sure if that means it was "fixed" as well?

Sounds like a prerun is in order......

Hey Stan are you starting a tread for the run the gulches planing? Right now there is info crossing 3 or 4 different treads for that and it's gonna get kind of messy!

I definitely want to get out there and see some more of what Colorado has to offer. Just need to figure if the trails picked are suitable for my truck.
Thanks
