       17 Oct 2019 - Rode Limbaugh canyon today. Started at the south end just past the Mule trailhead and we rode to the north trailhead at Palmer Lake and shuttled back. The first part of the trip was steep. Just after starting we missed a left turn and went up a very steep trail before noticing the error. It might be better to go farther down Mt. Herman road to the second trailhead to avoid some of the steepness. I'll try that next time. The rest of the trail was great. The weather was perfect and some of the aspen leaves are on the ground already. Great scenery and fun trail.
