Ok, i've never been to camp dick before. where is there a good meeting place. looks like on google earth that there is a parking lot once you pass through the campsites? or should we meet at middle st vrain rd. and 72. reason i'm asking is that i'm meeting my daughter there and she needs to leave her car in an area so that it won't be towed.

thanks

We might be in for this one after all. As of now, my schedule for the weekend has cleared up quite a bit.

usually there's plenty of room and parking at the trail head, after the campsites:

https://maps.google.com/maps?daddr=4...p=1&sz=19&z=19

but if you're going on labor day it might be kind of crowded there, not sure myself, never been during a 'busy' time. won't have a problem being towed if you park in that lot. not sure if you park somewhere else

From Trail Damage:

The Starbucks at 3033 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder, CO. This is also immediately next to a gas station, Moe's Bagels and King Soopers.
Where would your daughter be coming from?

We'd be up for Coney Flats as well. These two combined is about 50% longer then Jenny Creek, so we might consider meeting a little earlier and plan on a longer day on the trail.

Mwelch

Obersthajj
Relocatedduckman (hope you find a 33)

I hope all the maybes will be able to make it. This looks like a fun trail.
We can decide on the trail if some of us want to do Coney Flats.

Plan is to meet at the trailhead (parking lot after the campsites)at 9am
try to head out by 9:30.

I will try and update the list Sunday night.

She is coming from Greeley. She will most likely be going through Lyons.

Yeah, looks like going through Lyons would be the best way for her to go.

Pretty sure we'll make this one, but the girls will not be with me... just the wife and little guy.

Have her leave her car at the campsites. The trailhead parking is always packed.

Looks like we are in for sure on this one as well. My oldest will bring a friend this time.
Didn't even wash the Jeep from last weekend at Jenny Creek. Best decision all week!

with just me and the wife last weekend it took us ~3 hours for both trails, and that was with me moving at a pretty good pace for my limited amount of flex. the CF side of the trail will take up ~70% of the time imo. if you have larger tires/lift with aftermarket control arms you could probably shave off 30min, but then if you're with a group add that 30 min back on :P

Yeah, more Jeeps mean more time. I wonder If it works out to x amount of time per additional Jeep. If it takes a single Jeep 3 mins to do and an obstacle, five Jeeps should take about 15 mins. Add in everyone taking pics, loading and unloading the kiddos.... I'm planning for all day. Lol

Oh, and we are in too!

Duck man, I have a stock 2012 rubicon spare. I'm pretty sure it's a 33. Will that work?
