April 20th

Sounds like a good ride. I might try to make it but I'll have to camp out there.

Hell, that sounds like a plan. I'll bring my camping gear.

Re: April 20th

Looks like we're going to have a few!!

My thought is a 10AM meeting at the gas station unless someone with some more experience suggests otherwise.

The wife and I would love to camp but our schedule doesn't allow for it.

Does anyone know how long the trail should take?

Looking forward to it!!!

Re: April 20th

10 am sounds good to me. The trail takes about 1 to 1.5 hours, but there's 2 bad@ss lines just off the trail and some other offshoots that add to it. I searched and searched, I didn't see anything on the usda website about it being closed. I would hate that... and accept responsibility

I've tried to call a few times this morning and have not got anybody. I'm going to keep trying.

This one looks not to bad and I was able to confirm it IS open.

Re: April 20th

I just confirmed it's closed for spring run off.

It appears that Switzerland trail is open and Bunce School Road. Anyone have suggestions or preferences?

I'm fairly new to Colorado myself, I use AllTrails and filter to "offroad driving." It's fairly legit. How far from Denver are you? I may be able to give you a hand later this afternoon..
