Description

Day trip to Corral Canyon.  Link to map of area:

http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/cleveland/recreation/ohv/mvum2009/descanso_corral_canyon_august2009.pdf

We will meet at Four Corners at 0900 from there we will go to the trailhead of the Connector to take look at where Zack and whoever dares will be going.  The rest of us will continue on 17S04 to 911 (Gunslinger rated moderate). Not sure if 911A-D are bypasses or extra credit but we will find out ), Then we will take 903 (Bronco Peak rated difficult) to hopefully meet up with the daring ones for lunch at or near the peak then continue down to 17S06 by Bobcat Meadows campround and do 908 (Sidewinder also rated difficult).  I believe Sidewinder is the toughest trail(besides the Connector) so that can be optional for those that think the section of Bronco Peak we are doing is a little too challenging or it is getting too late.

Adventure pass is required if you are leaving a tow vehicle ar Four Corners

05/13/10Rendevous01There is a trail that I haven't tried off of I-15 past Baker. I saw it one time when I came in from Tecopa. I need someone to go there and check this out with me but I think it is probably a two day event.
