Highlight: Glen Cove Road
Glen Cove Road serves as a primary artery within the Drummond Island trail network. This nearly 7-mile long trail connects the southern part of the island with Marblehead Road, Shale Beach, Stone's Throw and the East Marblehead Loop. Since this trail is a feeder, it is maintained at some level and none of the trail sits below the water line so there isn’t a ton of mud along the way either, but there is plenty to see. Drummond Island is host to a good size population of animals and is a haven in the area for birds. Sandhill Cranes, Upland Sandpipers, Vesper & Savannah Sparrows, and the occasional grouse can be seen along the way. The island is host to 13 eco-systems and 6 different types of forests. Get a good taste of the island as a whole and don’t take this trail for granted, take your time to enjoy nature and wildlife along it.

This trail wasn't exciting in terms of off-roading but we needed to get to Marblehead. This turned out to be a pretty drive with lots of forest and wildflowers along the way. Not sure I'd run this by itself, but it was a nice way in and out of the area that day.

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?!'.
