Alpine Loop - Colorado Camping

Post by BoldAdventure » Thu May 17, 2018 12:02 am

Early planning stages, and since some don’t use FB, thought I would post here as well.

Planning to do a shorter weekend run up the Alpine Loop, Imogean Pass and over night camping. Possibly other trails. Late June or Mid July.

No way in a million years will it be around the 4th or Memorial Day.

About 5 of us that might be there.

Details will follow as we hammer it out.

I'm interested. Not sure I can as I'm on-call in June, but might be able to trade with someone.

I always go on the 4th. The 4th is a blast. Just cannot camp in the Valley near Silverton obviously. We are planning to camp off Stony Pass this year, maybe just camp on the trail. The parade is fun and we always take a massive amount of Moriarty Ordinance with us.

Will plan for the 4th again next year. End of summer of 2019 will build a private play ground and camp site 2 miles outside of town. Once I have it ready I will let everyone know. Will be really close for camping but no zoo. Don't think I can get my permits and a week of road building done by the 4th.

I fawn for that area. I love driving 550. Animas is a sweet spot. If a stranger in a Power Wagon had a few cases of beer would you give him a tour of the prospect?

You bet. Will keep you guys updated. I plan to set up a nice group spot over looking Silverton on the other end of the property.

Watching with interest - I'd really like to run these trails next year, and meet some fellow PW families. Not sure that timing will work out from us coming over from MI - but mid-July is a possibility maybe. I think wifey is already going to be in South Dakota for a couple of weeks in late June or early July digging up mammoths, so perhaps timing will be serendipitous.
