This feels like a dumb question, but is the best way to get there to use the new parkway?

Chris, the parkway is nice. Drops you right into Central City, then you can go left at the soon to be light and end up at the parking area where we meet. Can always go over the Oh my god rd if you have the time....

Got a camera? you can take a picture of me stuck in 6 inches of snow. Anyone got a winch big enough to pull me out? I'm saving up for arb to mount mine. I guess I'll just have to use the uphill button on the dash.

I don't have too many pic's yet. It was the family minivan until my wife got a Sequoia. I took it on the Ghost town run this summer. Up Poison spyder. The worst I got stuck was on dirt roads near Sylvan lake in 2" of snow, total mudfest on bald tires. Now it's got 33's and moab sand in the carpet, cheerio' s everywhere. not sure I'll ever get them out.

I believe it's going to a realitively warm weekend.

My Saxton Mtn. as an additioanl run idea may not be a good idea since we will will probably have a sizeable group and a late start. We will play around and have a good time though. Maby take a new alternate road to I. Springs. like O.M God road. I havn't been on that yet.

Oh My God Road has pucker factor for passenger cars, but it's not a trail. Just another nice scenic byway.

Yeah, deff not a 4x road at all. Did find some trails near the top of the switch backs while exploring one summer, don't know how fun they would be in the winter though(passes by one of the big mines up there, don't know the name)

That is Russell Gulch. Years back a large flash flood made that into one wicked trail. If you are headed up to Black Hawk from Clear Creek Canyon you see a bridge made of an old semi truck flatbed, thats the mouth of that canyon. The trail was open for about two months until some a-hole kids shot up some compressors and other mine equipment. The whole upper section is private property so those dip sticks succesfully got the trail closed permanatly. I'll look for some old wheeling pics from there...

I would but I don't have a cruiser really worthy of a snow run. The 70 sinks like a brick with the skinnies and the 64 is bone stock, maybe a tad lower from 40 years on the orig springs. I'll have to rely on perry for some pics.
