I just signed up to be a Trail Lead for California / Corkscrew on Thursday 9am. So to get ready for it I'd like to run the trail on Wednesday but with a slight modification. I'd like to meet in Ouray and drive down to Silverton to start the run at the Old Hundred Gold Mine Tour
. It looks interesting and that's the kind of thing I like to do while on vacation.
So if anyone is interested, here is the plan.
Meet the the Best Western some time in the morning say 9:30 (TBD
Drive down to SIlverton via HWY 550.
Follow the directions
to the Mine on CR 2.
Enjoy the hour long tour (Adults $17 others less)
Prep FJ's for the trail (Eg, Air Down, get a water from the ice chest)
Take CR2 North back to the Alpine loop and a quick stop in "Animas Forks
From Animas Forks continue on the Alpine look to the California Gulch Trail head.
California Gulch connects up to Corkscrew Gulch and then back to HWY 550.
Air up and take Hwy 550 back to Ouray.
Please PM me if you are interested.
