Breck: 7/19 - 7/22 Camping/ATV Riding Weekend (annual event)

  • Jul 19, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be a casual event with rides determined through-out the event as "majority rules". Feel free to come for any portion as your schedule allows and don’t feel like you HAVE to camp, some will stay in nearby accommodations and some are only coming up for a day.

CONTACT INFO: Donna B E-mail: [masked]

** Once I’m in the mountains, you’ll have to try me on my radio (Ch 4)

DIRECTIONS from Hwy 9: Approximately 1 mile north of the "Round-About" on the north edge of Breckenridge is a stop light for TIGER ROAD (NOT Tiger Run)...

1) Turn EAST on Tiger ROAD (aka Co Rd 6)

2) Follow Tiger Road, past the golf course... it will turn to dirt.

3) Start watching for CQR Signs. Approx 3 miles onto the dirt road, you will be making a LEFT turn on CR 354 (I think it’s the 2nd left and it is NOT marked). I’ll try to have a sign or banner there. Travel in on this about 1 mile, you should see a big CQR Banner.

4) Pick your own camp spot anywhere near enough to socialize as you wish.

5) If you have RADIOS... we will use Channel 4, feel free to call anyone from CQR for directions once you get close!

GPS COORDINATES for the Camp Site:

     39 deg 30'58.52" N

     105 deg 56'15.69" W

     elevation 9950

RIDE TIME(S): Plan to start rides, each day about 9:30 – 9:45am START (geared up and ready to ride) times. I will not place ride details on this site as this is "Majority Rules" event, dependant on who actually shows up each day.

EACH NIGHT: Group Socials -- I'm thinking about 8:00pm (after dinner) until ??? so bring your lawn chairs!!!

BRING: Any/all camping and riding gear, helmets required. It would be good to double check the “ATV Trail Gear List”!

MAPS: National Geographic’s – Trails Illustrated #104 and #108

DIFFICULTY: There are many trails in the area and they cover all categories (Easy, Moderate, Difficult). Since Majority Rules, last year, we rode mostly on the upper scale of Moderate and Difficult and at faster speeds. We can certainly split up the groups, based on riding difficulty levels, as needed. I may need more leaders to volunteer. Be prepared to ride 4-6 hours, but speed/difficulty will be “majority rules”.

OVERNIGHT:

    • Camping is in a DRY area with no facilities, bring ALL your gear!

    • Motels/Hotels: Breckenridge or Frisco are closest • Gas: Breck or Frisco

 

Trail Difficulty Ratings

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 (ie- weather, boulders, etc).

    This was our first ride with our rzr & we really liked meeting all the CQR members; they are fun and very helpful to newbies and supportive. The ride was more than we expected, but the experience allowed us to see what we could accomplish with the rzr. We are now more comfortable attacking future rides.

      you may not realize it, but you have now conquered some of the most difficult terrain in Colorado. Almost everything else will be a breeze.

    Still trying to get outta town and be there. Likely will not make Sat ride, but maybe the potluck Sat evening. If we get up there will stay to Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday exploring and fishing.

    354 road has been graded and the hump over the culvert near the campsite is also significantly better than last year! Come on out and join us!!!

    When will the signs be going up. Rides begin at 9 so if it works out, we might go up Thursday evening. Otherwise will just use GPS coordinates to get close.

    July 16, 2013

    • Spice It U.

      We plan to be there sometime Thursday afternoon. I will put sign up at our camp site. At least you will know when you found the right group.

    July 15, 2013

  • chad n.

    Does anyone know if there's still a fire ban in effect for that area

    July 14, 2013

  • Ron D.

    We can only make the Saturday ride.

    CULVERT UPDATE: This morning, a friend scoped out the hump over the culvert, it is still there (he can't compare severity to last year); however, he also said the camp ground had several 30-40 ft RVs there so he asked them about it. 2 of them said, "We were fine with spotters as we went over it" SO...we will help spot your drive over it...OR..stay in the camp area right off of Tiger just 1/2 mile away and bring your ATVs and lawn chairs for the social times!!

    July 13, 2013

  • chad n.

    we are coming but we will just be playing on whatever easy trails we can find with our kids anyone know the trails #'s for easy stuff

    July 10, 2013

    • Donna

      Chad, basically they are all "easy" at the lower altitudes, they get tougher/rockier as you climb. I would guess that there are ~10 miles of "easy" but they are like a star pattern... a ride out until it gets tough, then you double back... It is gorgeous area so Oyou will certainly enjoy exploring.

    Still excited to come, but will be staying in a little RV acquired and not bringing my puppy, Charlie, since there is a pot luck dinner and such a great group of attendees.

    July 10, 2013

    • Spice It U.

      Why leave the puppy behind? We bring our dogs.

      My daughter volunteered to watch him. He is a good puppy, but still a 6 month old 40 lb puppy. If my daughter and ex backs out on watching him, he will come along.

    Many different trails to ride, you don't have to ride with the group...ride at your own leisure and we hope to see you at the social evening times. I have a friend personally checking on the culvert and road conditions...will post updates here soon!

  • Gregg and C.

    Does anyone have any updates on the condition of the road to the campsite? I've heard that it's really rough this year and could be a problem for low-clearance RVs

    July 8, 2013
