Altona, Lefthand Canyon, Ward, ‘Reverse Super James’
August 14 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
In an effort to mix it up a bit we’ve got a ride today that we haven’t done before. We start out at Altona (Hwy 36 and Lefthand Canyon Rd) and ride up Lefthand to Ward. We can grab a snack at Ward and use the San-o-let there. Then we head north on Peak to Peak Highway till Overland Rd. We take a right and head east on the hard gravel road that becomes asphalt after 2.2 miles. We drop down (and I do mean drop) a fairly steep hill and if our brakes are still working we slowly go through Jamestown and perhaps stop for a break (or not) before heading back down to the cars. OPTIONAL EXTRA. . . . If we all feel STRONG, we could do the 5 miles up to Brainard Lake once we leave Ward. It’s a great road with great scenery.
