Default 2nd Annual Mega Magnolia Transect - Sat Sept 10

I've decided it's time to do another Mega Magnolia Transect. Only this time, more MEGA and more trails. Last year I started at West Magnolia and headed south to Gamble Gulch, then Kingston Peak, then Yankee Hill and the "fun" route to Apex Road, then over to Rollinsville East.

This year I propose the following route:
  • Meet at the cemetery in Central City at 7:30am on Saturday
  • Leave cemetery by 8am
  • Run up and over Yankee Hill
  • Connect over to Kingston Peak via Alice
  • Connect back to Yankee Hill
  • Do the "fun" road down to Apex (might skip this depending upon vehicles that come)
  • Down Gamble Gulch
  • If we feel like it, up Rollins Pass East and maybe down Jenny Creek? (I've never done Jenny Creek so I would only do this with someone who has done it before)
  • Up West Magnolia
  • Pavement to Eldora (lunch in Nederland? Fuel stop as well?)
  • Take the road from Eldora up to Caribou Flats
  • Caribou Trail to Rainbow Lakes
  • See what we feel like and maybe turn this into a night run on some of the roads to the north (Coney Flats? Switzerland Trail? T-38 crash site? Have dinner in Ned before embarking on a night run?)

There are good "bail-out" points along the way where someone could head off to the pavement with ease. Someone could also meet us along the way. If you would want to meet up as the Mega Magnolia Transect is underway, I can provide you with my DeLorme InReach beacon map page so you can see where we are and meet up where appropriate.

So... who's with me?

A few pictures from last year:

Jenny Creek is easy now with the reroute, its not even half the trail it used to be.
