Poughkeepsie Gulch

July 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

My plan is to leave south city market no later than 9 AM.
NO stop in Ouray. Air Down at the Corkscrew trailhead, and utilize the facilities in the woods.
Corkscrew -> Hurricane -> Top of Poughkeepsie.
If you need to stop for a potty there are 2 along the Corkscrew pass trail so feel free to peel off to use them, but my goal is to not stop till we hit the upper gate after airing down. It is going to take some work to remove the one snow drift. The bright side to this is that it is all downhill travel after the work is done. We will have some kind of briefing for all people in attendance at the top of the trail before we open the gates.

Be sure to have a full tank of gas, lunch, water and lots of snacks. Also bring tools, such as snow shovels, to help clear the drifts.
