We ran Carnage Canyon first. It was muddy and slick and we had to go around a lot of the obstacles, but we still had a great time. We turned right off of Carnage Canyon once we got to the intersection with Forest Service Road 286 and continued along the Left Hand Canyon trail.
We came to Tippy Tree pretty soon, the obstacle called the "Squeeze" in the Charles Wells book. The rocks lean you very close to the tree on the right side. No one hit anything, though.
Near the top of the trail, we came to a T-shaped intersection. We turned left and drove along a shelf road with some terrific views. The trail took us to the top of the hill where the Overland Fire Restricted Area starts. The restricted area is fenced off and clearly marked.
When we got to Forest Service Road 287, we took that down the Castle Gulch trail before heading for Boulder.
