Might be tough finding someone to join you during the week. Don't know what the snow situation looks like down there. Saw some pictures from last weekend where a couple guys rode up above Central City. There were areas with 2' or more snow already. I think they made it all the way to Yankee Hill, but it took some effort in spots. :smile

That would be a good time. Usually spend a week up in Taylor Park every summer, but haven't been the last two because of Cottonwood Pass being closed. The detour over Monarch Pass and then up from Gunnison just isn't worth it to me. Hopefully next summer we will make it if we don't head down to the Lake City area instead.

Hey while you guys are on the subject and specifically Taylor Park. Next trip out to Utah I would like to hit TP so what is the best time of year to ride it? Understandably the best time for Moab might not be the best time for TP.

You don't want to hit Taylor Park before July. It is typically the first or second week in July before all the passes are open, particularly Tincup Pass that leads you down to St. Elmo. There is always a giant snow drift right at the top. Only a couple hundred feet long, but it completely blocks the trail. Some try to get full sized rigs through when there is barely enough room for an atv... You do NOT want to go to Moab in July! I would say if you want to hit both in the same trip, mid-September would be your best bet.

Feel free to use it if you would like. I guess they got it pulled back up on the trail by using three jeeps on the front (one winching and the other two as anchors) and one large truck on the rear to keep it from sliding over the edge, about a week and a half after it happened. Makes you wonder what he was thinking... :thinking:

whats sad is accidents and deaths happen all the time in CO due to stuff like this! :eek
just the other day, I saw a bronco lost by dankan road @ rainbowfalls. He asked for our help saying if there was a way for him to get out to the main road since he was visiting CO. I was like wellllll up dankan mountain or the way you came from. warned him though dankan can be dangerous when there is snow when climbing up. He proceeded to follow us through dankan on our quad and he almost went off the cliff!! wish I had my go pro that time ha ha.
