CO: The Gultches 10-16-10

Went out to do Long water, Metberry and Hackett Gultches this weekend. It was supposed to be a bigger group but the guy who posted the run didnt show so it was me, rob50lx, Jack (AvengerSC), his son and some father and son couple in a polaris buggy thing (I have no idea).

They are pretty easy trails with some amazing views. Hope you enjoy the pics:

I miss living out there.
Looks like a blast!

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

That area suffered a major fire a few years back so alot of the trees were burned. I can only imagine how beautiful that area must have been before the fire.

Also I was told you used to be able to drive all the way down to the river from Long water and then ford it (looked about 2 feet deep) and then come up Metberry but that has been closed.

Did you guys make it through all 3 trails? Looks like you made it through Metberry. Curious to know if you had any issues with a stock jeep on the other two trails.

We did all three. I have a stock jeep and had no issues. Rob just had a Teraflex leveling kit and no issues and we had a stock TJ with no lockers that didnt have issues either.

It was a fun trail ride. It was a small group of some cool people. It was awsome to see 2 supercharged Jeeps in action. It definately makes me want one so I can change the nick name of my Jeep from "Gutless Turd" to something better.

Actually didnt take very long at all. It took ~40 minutes to get to the area from Woodland Park and then maybe another 10 minutes to get to the trailhead of Hackett. Each trail head is probably 5 minutes apart.

That red JK belongs to Jack of Avenger and he sells it. It is the same top that was used by River Raider to build Project ST. Give Jack a call for more info on it.

Also found a video of him doing Spring Creek. Should give you a better picture of the top:
