Rally Point Notes:

Actual Trip Leader is: @jdgreens

(Hancock Pass and a small optional section of Tincup Pass are classified differently than most of our routes and technically require an OHV permit. More info here: https://staythetrail.org/full-size-trails/ and permit is available here: https://cpw.state.co.us/buyapply/Pages/RegistrationsOHV.aspx

There is time built into the schedule to visit the ghost towns and other local attractions.

The location details include the meeting place and time for each day. If you want to visit the towns of Tincup and St. Elmo, arrive before the meeting times as much as you need.

There will be a different camp location each night. Daily start times are late enough that one doesn't have to rush to break camp.

If you are brave enough to bring a trailer, it could be dropped for the ascent up Antero on Thursday, but would need to make the traverses of Hancock and Tincup Passes.
