Same drive time to Grizzly lake, which is supposed to be challenging at the intro, then get easier as the trail climbs. Ends at an awesome lake for fishing. It is 120 miles to the trail head (mostly down 285).

Iron Chest is a 2 mile trail right by Grizzly Lake (like same parking lot) that is a short version of Spring Creek. IC is a level 6 to 8 trail depending on the lines, so really challenging and one that I have been interested in for awhile.

All of these are around Buena Vista.
All right Bastardos , I want to be able to do these trails this year so pick something else. Please

No worries Don- we can do those when you can go!




We don't have to do anything crazy next weekend, I would like to be able to engage the lockers though. Just a request, doesn't have to happen.

How far does everyone want to drive? A lot of the trails I want to do are far away (BML, Blanca, Holy Cross, Chinaman's, etc), and I don't feel like driving 3 hours to get to a trailhead. I'd like to do something on the level of Carnage/Spring Creek- something that gives some challenge, but not overly difficult. Has anyone done SOB hill? How far of a haul is it to the trailhead? Hard trail? What about Eagle Rock?

All of that goes for me as well. The bonus of a trail like Carnage or Spring Creek is that you can make it as hard as you want, or take bypasses if you so choose. What other trails are like that?


Eagle Rock is a fun/challenging trail, but I hate the 13 mile drive down the rough dirt road. It wouldn't deter me from going though.

A trail I really want to run is called Sidewinder. It is a very short trail and is man made. Only problem is, traildamage doesn't have a report on it and the obstacles look pretty intense.

Blanca is another trail on my list- it is a long *** drive though.

SOB Hill is an obsticle, not really a trail. It is a trail, you have to get to the hill somehow, but not any harder than upper swan, until you get to the hill. The hill is about a quarter mile long, tough as heck, but not that long. I think you can stand at the bottom of it and see the top. What it is, is a rock field with large boulders on it, on a steep hill. Without problems a capable rig should be able to go up it in less than an hour, down 15-20 minutes. This is assuming no straps or winching.
That's why you need the other trails as a part of the ride, to fill out the day.

I think I read about this trail in JP or 4Wheeler or something. Do you know where it's at? I'd like to run that trail as well, but I don't know if I'm capable enough for it...if it's the one that I'm thinking of anyway.

Yep- I have directions to the trail head.

Best description I have is:

Quote:
Sidewinder traveled uphill in a narrow gully. It would have an obstacle made up of several boulders followed by an easy dirt stretch and then another obstacle. Most of the obstacles didn't leave a lot of room for maneuvering and featured diff catchers. The smaller boulders tended to move a little, so I'd expect this trail to be a bit different every time. I think the trail slightly favored shorter wheelbases, but nothing a longer wheelbase with some clearance and good rocker protection couldn't handle. For those of you that remember the Kremmling Crawl a few years back, the obstacles were similar to those.

It was evident that the Mtn Metal Mashers had put quite a bit of work into the trail and the obstacles that were there were good ones. I just wish it would've been longer. It took us about an hour to run.
Pics from the trail:













It is in Kremmling, 105 miles from Denver. So an hour and fifty minute to two hour drive. It might be biting off more than I can chew... but it looks fun as hell.

That being in a gulley like that, I suspect the water changes that trail quite a bit every year

Whenever I find a leak, I find it easier to just upgrade to a brand new aftermarket part
