Hey L.O.S.T Rockies!!,

I'm planning a trip from Colorado Springs to the Great Sand Dunes N.P. via Medano Pass primitive trail. The trail is rated moderate due to multiple water crossings as well as a soft sandy stretch near the dunes. There is also one rocky section which is not bad at all. I wanted to do it on 1 Sep stay the night in the Sand Dunes and head back on the 2nd. Anyone who wants to go is more than welcome to do so. If you have a stock rig that’s fine to (tow points recommend). I figured I would put it out there to see if anyone wanted to go. It would be a good chance for old members to get back together and for new members to meet each other. Here is more info about the trail as well as some pictures of it.

Oh I'm planning on bringing my red sled of death and an old snowboard for some fun on the dunes.

Did you go out? And I'm planning a trail ride for the 15th also. I'm going to post something later. If anyone is interested let me know.

That's a really neat area. My wife and I hiked in the dunes and did some water crossings ourselves.

There are only a few of us from NM who are active on the board, so I rarely check the LOST ROCKIES section.
