Little 'Uns Run

Thought I'd start a new thread so we can un-hijack the one we were chatting in

Don's busy the entire month of September with guard drills and vacation, so that leaves the 29th and 30th. What does everybody think of that? Fall colors should still be good then.

What's the consensus on Saturday or Sunday? As long as I can get my kid in the bath at a reasonable hour, Sunday works for me. Saturday can be made wide open, and as late as needed.

Thoughts?

That's what I was thinking - Switzerland, Caribou, Johnny, Pierson, any of the pretty easy ones.

Or, we can go harder and scenic. All depends on the "lowest common denominator" Family with the youngest passenger can override the majority or something like that

I'm kind of thinking perhaps Switzerland Trail - nice picnic/BBQ spot up top for a lunch/dinner get-together?

I'll need somebody to chime in on other areas. I don't know Caribou at all. As soon as we figure out some areas, I'll set up a poll so we can vote on where to go.

Caribou is nice and there are TONS of spots along the route to stop and picnic.

Maybe we could do Switzerland and Pennsylvania together?

Switzerland-->Penn-->Caibou-->Eldorado would be a full day

Start at either end of Switzerland, shoot up to Pennsylvania Gulch, head North on the Peak to Peak HW for ~2-3 miles, take a left towards Rainbow Lakes and head South on Caribou, take that until you reach the Eldorado Trail and head SW on there into Eldora where ya air up...

Not bad at all. Could be a bit of a long day for the kiddos though, not sure.

You have 3 exit points...The end of Penn Gulch, the end of Caribou, or the end of Eldorado Trail...you could just play it by ear.

That works. I've only run 1 out of the 4, and I ran Switz in the snow, so no clue about any of them.

Carnage is pretty easy. I think you can hit that pretty well with some younglin's.




Maybe you can do Indy/Patriot or SideWinder too.





The trails you're talking about are on the lighter side so that you don't shake the poop out of the kids, but still enough of a challenge that it's fun, scenic, and breaks them into the 4wheeling game well.
