Default Sunday August 12th - Easy Run to Bill Moore Lake

You will meet at 9AM in Downieville and follow Timmbuck2 up to Empire and then on to Bill Moore Lake. This is an easy trail that a stock truck could do with no issues. There are a few small moguls and one area called the Rock Garden (Not hard) that has a bypass.

You then drive up to Bill Moore Lake and walk around the Lake and have a picnic (if you want). The Lake is in a beautiful Crescent peak that you can see Denver from on one side.

Here are a few trip reports from previous runs

Post up if you plan on coming so Timm can plan accordingly as your Trail leader.

Here are a few trip reports from previous visits there.

Timm, let these folks know where in Downieville to meet you as the Hard Core run is meeting at the Burger King and you don't want to get mixed up.

Seems like the same thing is happening this year as last when there was huge interest in the "moderate run" up Red Cone and no one showed for the "easy run" on Bill Moore. There were about twenty vehicles on Red Cone last year and three on Bill Moore.

Maybe there would be more interest if the Bill Moore run included Red Elephant Hill and and Mill Creek as a loop?? It would make it slightly more challenging and it might help distribute the vehicles rather than having a huge traffic jam on Red Cone.

Just a thought.

I would be up for that...but I think that takes the difficulty level up a little...but heck, Bill Moore Lake is already listed as "difficult" in a guide book.

I'd be up for this (including the loop) but alas not only am I probably going to miss the rally but the trail runs as well

It appears I will be joing the wife and daughters downtown to see "The Little Mermaid"....Oh the humanity

Timm, what time to you think the run would be finished up by...I don't think the play starts until 2:00pm IIRC

Bill Moore is pretty mild. It's tamer than Slaughterhouse Gulch.

I agree...my stock LX had no problems at all, although the lockers came in handy on the 1 steep, loose section.

Jeff, I could see getting back to Empire well before 1 if we don't spend much time at the lake...

Took my daughter up Bill Moore today for her first trail run with me. Nice and very easy, certainly tamer than Slaughterhouse as Hulk said. Personally I think people would enjoy Slaughterhouse more but that's just me.

We picked up at least a case worth of beer cans and number of "Littleton Lions" plastic cups. Appears the Lions wanted to leave their mark.
