Ok there is a place called Deckers that we could meet. It's basically a fishing shop in the middle of nowhere. See Deckers Colorado in a google search. There is no fuel there, so be topped before you leave any main roads. We could also meet at Crossroads on 285. That's where you take the road south to head down into that area.

My only concern is that it's been years since I've been there. I'm confident in getting us there - just not sure I'll remember the trails.

The meeting place you mention is Deckers. That's exactly where I was talking about (without the map). It's 11:00 now. Can everyone make it to Deckers by 12:30? We will start with Metberry and see what time looks like for anything else. I'd rather not consume the whole day either.

Yes, channel 19 to start and possible change at Deckers.

It takes me about 3 hours to get to the South Platte river at the far end of Metberry. That's from my house in Centennial near Parker/Arapahoe. From HR, subtract 20 minutes.
This is a popular camping weekend, so expect to see others already there or on the trail.

Deckers Store is right in the tiny town of Deckers at the "T" where CO67 and Deckers Rd meet. There is the Flies and Lies fly shop in the same little building. No gas, the store will have basic provisions. This time of the year they have GREAT ice cream too. Any of you coming from Evergreen/Conifer/Foothills would take 285 to Pine Valley Rd/CO126 and come in that way. Southsiders would take 25 South to Happy Canyon Rd, 85 to 67. Deckers store is almost exactly 40 miles from Evergreen or Centennial.

I would't get there until about 1pm maybe a little later. Im up in westminster, need to get gas and pack some stuff. If we leave now and do both or all three we won't get homeuntill 6 or so, is that ok (as along as all goes well).

Trust me, you will be hard pressed to just do Metberry and be home by 6. You're 4 hours from the bottom of Metberry right now......
