I'd run it. Plenty of people there to help if you find yourself in a pickle.

You can run the concrete with one locker no problem but the rock crawl will be real tough and you will have to wait till there is no line. RB

You can run the intermediate trail to where the new concrete culverts are and instead of staying on it you can then pass inspection and run the concrete section of Chadville, you will take the bypass around the rocks and right to the cement. Personally I would run the whole intermediate first and then do that on the second trip threw as you will probably enjoy the swing set which is past the cement culverts.
