Highlights

Highlight: Stone's Throw
Running parallel to the border between Canada and the United States, Stone’s Throw connects East Marblehead Loop and Shale Beach to the rest of the trails on the island. The trail in this area starts to get very wet as you enter the marsh, leading to some deep water. The short trail isn’t terribly technical, but the muddy and wet road surface makes the trek fun while hopping around this area of the island.

Fun little trail through to Marblehead Loop. The water crossings were the highlight of this short little trail.

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
