Metberry Gulch

Couple of us are heading down to Metberry on Sunday, meeting at 9AM at the McDonalds by the Factory Shops in Castle Rock. We might get lost on the way down there since it's been 5 years since this trail's been open, and 6 since I've been on it. Got a thread going on MallCrawlin about it too.

Sounds like fun. I'll have to see if I can get my radiator replaced before Saturday.

I totally misread this post and thought the run was on Saturday. Looks like I won't be going after all.

If the BBQ is later in the day you'd be fine. Trail should only take 2 hours and then a couple hours of drive time there and back.

I'm still waiting on them to declare an official time for the BBQ. If it's later in the day I'd love to join up with you guys. You all should consider coming to the BBQ as well...

Famous last words....

I remember Kane Creek in Moab was only supposed to be about 4 hours. 8 hours later, we were back.

Looks like the BBQ is at 1. That'd be cutting it pretty close.

I had given up on the gultches.
Thanx for the info!
Might have to make a run up there.
Supposedly the cabin at the bottom burned to the ground so it will be interesting to see the changes.
Enjoy!

Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.

I ran Metberry stock and supposedly it's easier now than before the fire so we SHOULD be okay, lol.

Metberry hill can be kinda neat, the moguls get deeper and move around a little depending on the traffic. I have seen vehicles stranded because they drove in but couldn't drive out (monteros etc). It should be pretty smooth untill the nubies tear it up (give it a couple of months and it will be the same as it has always been).
Enjoy!

I rode along at Longwater in a stock YJ years ago. That's a really neat area, and I've always been bummed I haven't been able to run any of it myself. Crossing the Platte was a little bit sketch though.

We'll see what happens with my rad over the next few days. At the very least I'm going to need to get it and my t-case linkage fixed before I run another trail.

The folks at Predator 4WD (Jerry and Julie) deserve our thanks! They have been trying to get sign off on this for years. They are working on Longwater rebuilding and sign offs now.

I"m sure that they could use some volunteers!
Enjoy!
