Default 3rd Annual Run the Gulches

Come join us for the 3rd Annual Run the Gulches on December 6th, 2014.

It will soon be that sweet time in between Thanksgiving and Christmas where the winter doldrums are just starting to set in. Why not take a break from hanging Christmas lights or fighting I-70 traffic to the slopes and enjoy a day with Rising Sun?

I'm sorry for the late notice, I had to move some things around and I'm jammed up for the next few weeks.

This year we'll keep the plan kinda loose and run a combination of Metberry, Hackett and Illinois Gulches. This will be based on who we have coming and the ability of the vehicles. Metberry can be done in a stock Toyota. Hackett is a little more difficult and I would recommend sliders and a small lift. Illinois is about the same as Hackett - maybe slightly more difficult - and it also has an obstacle called Moab Hill. To run the hard lines on Moab Hill you'll want lockers, bumpers, sliders and at least 33's. Moab Hill is optional and there are easier lines to try. We will only have time to run 2 of these 3. There will be opportunities for folks to dip out and head home early if they choose.

Previous Trip Reports

1st Annual TR

2nd Annual TR

Meeting Place - Deckers Store 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, but if the store is open it will have basic provisions. This is a long day so make sure you fill up prior to arriving. Any of you coming from Evergreen/Conifer/Foothills would take 285 to Pine Valley Rd/CO126 and come in that way. Us southsiders would take 25 South to Happy Canyon Rd, 85 to 67. No reason for you northsiders/foothills guys to have to go all the way to Happy Canyon. Deckers store is almost exactly 40 miles from Evergreen or Centennial.

Pack a lunch and a thermos of something warm. I'll make a burrito run that morning again. Post up if you'd like me to pick you up one of the best breakfast burritos in all of Denver. They're $5 and as big as your foot.

Deckers Store at 8:30am for a 9:00am departure. Should be fun! 146.46 is preferred, but not required. CB4 as a low quality, scratchy, barely readable back up.
