Joe Keck! Camping suggestion...is Baily a good idea

the wife and i are looking to leave denver and do a short night hike and hten camp, wake up and do some more mellow hiking. Looking for suggestions, we also have dogs. Wondering if we could camp and hike along Baily.

Joe I know your bored ass will have some suggestions. No rockstar delivery today.

First, it's Bailey, not Baily and definitely not Baileys. Second, you don't hike along Bailey (it's a town and the name of a section). You'd hike along the North Fork of the South Platte River.

So, there's no camping at the Bailey takeout. And there is a ranger residence, so I wouldn't try it. It could definitely be a good night hike from there. Dogs have to have leashes - willa got a ticket when she ran and jumped into the ranger's truck. There's camping not far near buffalo creek, but I don't have any better details or beta.

Gore monday!

Joe

Call Joel, ask him more about the buffalo creek area. Dogs have to have leashes pretty much everywhere in CO. Some places enforce it better than others and the Denver/Boulder mountain parks (Bailey takeout) are pretty notorious for strict enforcement.

Ware some blaze orange clothes. Gig game hunting season is on. I would put some blaze orange on dogs too. So you do not get mistaken for game.

good call raymo. blaze orange is a good idea for you and everyone this time of year, but better yet, do a little research before your hike. stay out of the areas that have open big game seasons. it only lasts a week at a time and only a few of those open season weeks a year. not only will you avoid the conflict of someone dropping an elk in front of you or some idiot taking your dog, but also it is respectful not to have people and dogs running up on some poor guy who spent all day belly crawling up on the winters meat package.... bye bye elk herd. i have only had super sneak stalks blown by other hunters (i only hunt in areas unappealing to hikers) but no matter who chases off dinner, it is extremely frustrating.


just another point of view.

vegans flame away!!!!!
