Mayhem Gulch and Centennial Cone - Level 5+

Meeting place is here. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.737109,-105.371242. At the bottom of Mayhem Gulch. I think the closest overflow parking is just east of the parking lot on the south side of the road at the bend.

Time to get your legs burning on a nice long ride. For those who don't want to ride up Mayhem Gulch, you can park at the top parking lot and meet us at the Mayhem Gulch intersection around 9:45am. Let me know if you plan on doing this easier meeting area. I figure this will allow more people to join and those who want the extra grunt to have it.

The top loop looks like it's about 17 miles and add another 4.6 miles with the bottom loop. This will have to be an out and back since the Elk Range trail will most likely be closed due to elk calves in the area. There really is only 1 short technical section on the trail at the junction of Elk Range and Travois Trail, with a couple of good climbs (about 1500ft on 1 climb) and single track (along with some double track). Think Evergreen Mountain type/steepness of hills scattered throughout the trail.

    Too bad we got turned around due to the tiny fire. Good ride and good company though!

      I believe so. It was a small one but they turned us around at the ranger parking lot.

    The loop is open at this time. I road it last week. I am rehabbing a A.C.L again and my need to choose the shorter rout on the way back. If this is not OK let me know and I will give my spot up so others can go.

      If you are going around for the loop I'm in but if you are going for the 23+ mile out and back I will need to do the loop at the top. It sounds like you will be doing the loop. Is this right?

      June 25, 2013

    • Kris K

      Yes, we'll be doing the loop. I am riding Evergreen on Saturday so the out and back might be a bit much for me too!

    I'll be climbing Long's Peak on Saturday, not sure how well my legs will do up Mayhem on Sunday.

    I forgot that this was the weekend that Panic is playing 4 days at red rocks. I'll be in no shape to ride on Sunday. Sorry. Have fun!
