Default Summer Solstice Run

It's that time of year again. This is an interest feeler as I'm not sure what day will work this year, if any.

The plan would be to do something like last year's ride here and take advantage of the late light:
http://risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/s...ad.php?t=19783

Meeting at the intersection of Rampart Range Road and Jackson Creek Road. 6.4 miles south of the intersection of Hwy 67 and Rampart Range Road.

https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...02288&t=h&z=19

Map of the area:

Official RRMMC maps are available to purchase at locations listed on this page:
http://www.rampartrange.org/

Anybody interested?

Yes, rampart is pretty much all 48" width and less. There are a couple single tracks. If you have a plate that can sometimes come in handy because without one you are not supposed to be riding on rampart range road.

I think we can make a good loop of it from the Rampart north Trailhead (right off Hwy 67) and not bother with driving on the road down to Flat Rocks or Garber etc. It's pretty dusty and washboarded right now, which isn't abnormal for this time of year. So unless someone has a strong opinion otherwise, I'm changing this to meeting at the Rampart North TH, right off Hwy 67.

Tentatively thinking 787, 673/674, crossing over to 682, 686, 685 or something like that. Should be a good couple of hours.

There is new singletrack that just opened though down by Flat Rocks, apparently beginners need not apply. Might be fun depending on riding abilities of everyone coming. That'll be a game time decision.

Yeah I know it's a tough one to get out of work early and such. Sure was fun 2 years ago though! I think we're going to avoid Scotty's Rock this year...
