    **Stoke Keystone Gulch/CT/Reds/Aqueduct trail Stoke**

    An easy slow paced ride today with some route finding trouble. BRING A MAP. Not sure if I went up west Ridge or not. I'm pretty sure I didn't, but I did find the CT at the end of that dirt road.

    I used to be able to do so, as well, but I sold my place and moved 2 hours away in '97 so I don't ride it as much any more. It was a great ride from home.

    Red's was the highlight super smooth and the views just opened up. I'm not sure about climbing it never have. That was my first visit to that area.

    Have you done that as an OnB from the Keystone Gulch trail head, avoiding the road?

    That's a great loop to have in your backyard. I've got Elk meadow in Evergreen and Three sisters close by which I can't complain about. But that loop is something Special.


    It's to bad the beetle kill is getting worse around there. Countless trees are affected. A bunch of loggin operations going on around that loop.

    The trail was free of dead fall though. We need some rain it was super dry there. The CT had that moon dust/silt thing goin on.

    Nice Stoke Man

    I need to get up and do some high country rides this Summer. I usually just do resort riding but I think I'll go and do a few nice high country rides like this. Looks pretty smooth but sounds fun from what people are saying.

    Did your dog do the whole 18miles? Also, Nice looking bike.

    With this all this heat headin up to the high country is all that makes sense now, unless you can get out early or late enough.

    Yeah she can do a little more than that, did Kenosha to Georgia pass a few weeks ago. She's good as long as we take a few breaks here and there, and stop when we see some water. But 20 miles is about at her upper limit.

    Thanks, love the RIP 9, had a JET 9 and just wanted more travel every time I went downhill.
