Hello everyone. I now have the dates set for my Colorado 2021 trip. The dates will be August 21st - August 28th. There is a total of 3 "vehicle" openings with a total of 6 people. The total for lodging is going to be $335 per person or $670 per couple for the 7 nights. We do plan on trail riding Sunday through Friday. The way the trails are set is thay you can head back to the house early if you would like or if you'd like to not trail ride for the day, there will be plenty of sightseeing to do in the area. We will be staying in Alma, Colorado. Tuesday, pending weather, we plan on doing the Jeep badge of honor trail Holy Cross. If it ends up raining that day, we will do it a different day. The trails will range from easy to difficult. There will be lots of scenery to see and lots of old mining ruins along the trails that we will be checking out along the way. I like to plan my trips with a wide variety of things to do that will suit everybody's likes. The majority of the vacation will be at 9,000 feet in elevation with a bunch of it being over 12,000 feet. I would love to see anyone participate, but the air does get thin up there so I would not recommend it to anybody with breathing issues. I do plan on having a meeting sometime this Spring with everybody that is going so that everybody knows what to expect and can meet each other. There will be a total of five or six vehicles going along. This way we can keep the group moving as some of these trails in the difficult areas can take extra time. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me. I do plan on leaving the Thursday prior to get out there. Check in at the house is 3 p.m. on the 21st and check out is 10 a.m. on the 28th.
Here is the list of trails that we will be doing. They go from super easy to difficult. The scenery along all the trails is going to be amazing. I've personal never been to this area, but it will be my 6th time out to Colorado on the trails. This is a rough itinerary as Monday and Tuesday's trails will get moved around accordingly if it is going to be raining those days.
Saturday: Check in to house after 3pm
Sunday: Wheeler Lake Trail- Difficult, Lower Mt. Bross- Easy
Monday: Webster Pass/Handcart Gulch- Moderate, Red Cone- Difficult
They are not crazy extreme trails (well maybe Tuesday) but with the elevation, extreme drop offs and switchbacks I usually equate it to adding 2 levels to a trail rating. For those that want to ride along on harder days there will be room in vehicles that I know are going already. Goggle the trails if you'd like and then you can ask away if you have further questions. I'll gladly answer whatever questions you might have. I do also plan on bring a air compressor, welder, and a fair amount of tools if you happen to break while wheeling.
