Funny that just today a climber friend asked if I'd drive her up there sometime. Sounds like no problem but not a road to do alone. great report!

UB - was the 500 miles direct door to door from Boulder there and back?

How long did it take to get to lake Como from the start of the trail?

UB = "LuckyDog"...This among the ultimate trails in Colorado--scenic and challanging-- and right up there as one of the coolest places on earth! Wanna go....sooner rather than later! Wanted to do this trail this year with sonme others, but just couldn't fit it in. Glad you got to do it and gvce us such a great report UB!

Guess it's better to be a "LuckDog" than an "Old40Dog...At least right now anyway...UB...you "LuckyDog! (Black Hills and Blanca within a month!)

From my house to my house. Google map it. The town of Blanca or Hooper would both be withing 10 miles of the trail head.

Great write up Kevin, that is amazing scenery. I love the pics, that is what drew me to colorado in the first place. Amazing stuff, looks like a fast, well built group.

What time would you budget to get to lake Como from the start of dirt? Return?

That is a hard to answer question Dan! If no one is ahead of you causing delays and your group cleans the obstacles with no issues, you can be at Lake Como in 3-4 hours maybe less. If you have someone with ill maintained equipment, really slow driver, obstacle difficulties, traffic ahead of you....plan on a day on the trail! This is a great run but if you're in a hurry you should not have a big group and in all scenarios you want to hit the trail early o'clock! Your results may vary! Be prepared as the lower section will be hot and the vehicles in your group might have heat related issues too, especially if your slipping the autos and crawling really slow!
