On the crossing? On MSV? The water crossing between MSV and Coney?

I haven't done the entire Bunce trail but it has snow blocks, not ice problems

What time will you be at the trail head? About 11:00? I might try to make part of the run, CSU game isn't until 5:00.

11:00 should be about right. Hope you can make it will be fun.

Later,

I am planning to run Bunce (5.0 miles), T-18 (2.5 miles) and Iron Clads (2.5 miles). None of these trails are that tought so it should not take us that long to run them. 10 miles total of trails.

Ryan I am just making sure that I am thinking correctly, but isn't the northern most gate closed and we have to enter via the south gate at camp dick? (According to the Boulder County Forest Service Site)

Anybody have a CB? If you do what channel will you be on? Just in case I make it but late.

I wonder if it is still open at all? In the description it says the trail at camp Dick start past the WINTER GATES.

Probably worth a call to the FS tomorrow.

Bunce is always open...and yes we have to ender through Camp Dick - however Camp Dick is at the Northern entrance not the southern entrance.

The only reason it is labeled as closed is because the Southern entrance next to MSV is closed. The Camp Dick entrance is always open.

I'll be running a CB and generally we use channel 9.

I thought Camp Dick was the southern entrance? Bruce School is the northern entrance. Right?

Ok yeah I was confused...Camp Dick is to the South but I am still pretty sure we have to enter through the Northern entrance...I remember last year when I ran it this part from traildamage:
Quote:
Coming from the north, take Highway 7 south through Allenspark. Before you get to the turn for Highway 72 you will see a sign for a "point of interest" -- a brown sign with arrows. This point of interest is the Bunce School where the trail starts.
Also this is where we aired down which is the school house no?

Shouldn't use channel 9 - it's reserved for emergency communications only

CB Radio Channel 9 may be used only for emergency communications or for traveler's assistance. Members of the Radio Emergency Associated Communications Teams (REACT) throughout the United States do an excellent job of guarding CB Radio Channel 9 specifically for emergencies or requests for directions. REACT is a non-profit public service organization. Its thousands of members can take advantage of REACT headquarters programs, which include group insurance, conventions, team newsletters, and special CB Radio equipment discounts.
There's a reason radios have a switch to change from any channel to 9 and back again.

Clint...I think I rode w/you at Pennsylvania Gulch or Switzerland trail. One of those two that I blew my sidewall out! LOL Glad to see you making a trek out!

We should try to get confirmations (instead of maybes). I'd hate to leave people behind who might be running late or something.
