road bike: huntington canyon and scofield - July 9, 2011
We'll camp Friday and Saturday nights at a National Forest campground in Huntington Canyon. Saturday, we can ride down the canyon from camp to the Huntington Power plant, then up to the top and back to camp, with an optional side trip up Crandall Canyon to the mine disaster memorial and a stop at an historic CCC guard station. Another option is to ride up the canyon from camp, over the top, on down to the upper end of Electric Lake and back. Either way, you'll see the scenery at the top of the canyon. It is to die for. Sunday morning we'll pack up and head for home via the Energy Loop scenic byway, stopping to ride part of it between Highway 6 and Scofield, with an optional leg up to the charming little mining town of Clear Creek. Contact Robert for more details and to register.
