Lol, I think it would be like swimming in toilet bowl cleaner! Get's that color from toxic mine waste.
The road to the east side of the lake is Poughkeepsie Gulch, the only sorta hard core trail in that area. One serious wall obstacle with a few different lines. Rest of it is moderate to sorta difficult. Great fun.
Every year I take my neighbors on a Jeep run. Couple weeks ago I took them over Brown's Gulch to behind the Red Mountain mining area, then over Corkscrew, Hurricane and California. These are essentially local trails for me. Been running them for 25 years and never cease to be amazed how beautiful the area is. While you're here hope you have time to do the Alpine Loop, Black Bear Pass and Imogene, too.
FWIW, these are all county roads and in no danger of being closed. A cooperative effort is underway to preserve the area exactly as it is for all interests. Sportsmen, Jeepers, 4x4s, Bikes (motor & non), hikers all have a stake and are working together to put the plan together. Much of this is private land and the big worry isn't closure, it's trophy home development. It is essentially a giant Superfund site that's never actually been declared and lots of remedial work needs to be done on old mines & tailings to stop heavy metals from reaching the creeks & rivers. Liability costs of cleanup keep property owners of these old claims from stepping forward, so the governmental agencies are trying to find a way to allow them to do remediation without risk.

This is in Northern California and I'm not sure why this trail isn't talked about more. Its an awesome trail, 8 miles round trip, has some awesome rocky sections, and amazing camping. The first time I ran it was two years ago, and we didn't see a single person other than the group I was with...
Hey, guys! I took my family to Moab and spent the week exploring. We stayed at a cabin in the Moab KOA (gasp!) and had an absolutely fantastic time. At Arches National Park we drove its only 4x4 trail and did various hikes with the kiddos (3 and 6 at the time). Next was Hell's Revenge on a...
ever since I was a teenager, I've wanted to visit the US of A. Whether it be the vehicles, the trucks, the sheer size of shit over there, I've had this bug in my arse to get over there and check it out.
Well back in 2010 when I was happily married, we had a few bucks stashed away for...
