Engineer Pass (08/12/2021)
Ran the loop CW out of Lake City on Thu Aug 12. Fairly quiet day with only ~15 Jeeps and 25-30 OHV/other vehicles. Took about 5-5.5hr with a few quick jaunts to the sights, but not many since the kids were a little car sick. It has been 17-18 yrs and many vehicles owned since we ran this last; it felt good to get out again.. Very scenic and classic ride, with some definite moderate spots west of Cinnamon Pass, on the connector, and west of Engineer Pass. The first and last quarters of the loop we ran in 4H, and the middle half in 4L disconnected in a stock 4xe Rubicon wo lockers; no issues and probably didn’t need to get out that one time, but some of the switchbacks are tight and have deep ruts. We could see some of the recent washout repairs, but nothing was very concerning. While scenic, I agree that Cinnamon is a little more boring than Engineer Pass. Next time I might take Engineer connecting to Silverton, or to Ouray and over Imogene.
