We had a great time last year, we did about a 5-6 hour ride.

2nd Annual Central City Day Ride

Fourth of July Day Ride

 

Contact: Chad New[masked]/ Jennifer New[masked] or [masked]

 

Ride will begin at 10 am

We will be meeting in the cemetery parking lot. Look for us in a White Dodge 2500 Truck and echo trailer with 2 ATV's.

 

We had a great time last year, we did about a 5-6 hour ride.

 

Bring a lunch!

 

Please be prepared as Colorado weather can change quickly. Also make sure you have tow straps, tire repair kit to be on the safe side. We had a couple of people with flat tires last year.

 

This is a beautiful scenery to Saint Mary's Glacier.

 

 

Easy but pretty rocky trails

Disclaimer: The rider assumes all responsibility to ride within their own capabilities on any of these trail rides. The trail rating guide system takes into consideration “typical” trail width of the ride, the steepness and the trail surface composition. These ratings are ONLY intended to be guides to make trail use easier and safer and to encourage you to assess your own capabilities before venturing out on any trail. Trail ratings are used to indicate the expertise needed to drive the trail under normal conditions but these conditions are subject to rapid change in Colorado (i.e.- weather, boulders, etc).

    Hey Chad we may join you all but I am not a fan of Central City so much. There was another parking lot further up the road somewhere, have to find it, that we may try that we have not traveled on. It goes up a bit. Last time we were there it was really windy and we were tired so we turned around. Nothing is for sure right now but hopefully we will see you all. Take care!

    Will there be anymore camping at columbine? Maybe we can get sites close by.

      If you want to camp it might be a good idea to make reservations since its a holiday weekend. We would camp but have too much going on that weekend.
