    2 days: epic xc rides, camping and hotsprings

    Two days in early august are free and clear. Looking to do some 15-25 plus xc rides. Smooth trails and epic views are pluses! Looking for dispersed or mellow camping for me and my truckcamper. Ideally located near some post-ride hotspring soak locations. Ideally within 3 hours of denver.
    Ideas?

    Thanks!

    When I first read your post I thought it said "two weeks". Two days? I was gonna say just hang around Crested Butte for the entire time and get to know the area...but there's a day of driving roundtrip there.

    Oh yeah, "smooth trails" and hot springs too? Looking forward to where you wind up going so I'll know next time!

    Honestly, I'd just stay on the Front Range with that time frame. I suppose it's all relative, but there are all sorts of options for smooth trails and hundreds (thousands?) of miles of trail within a couple hours of Denver. Buffalo Creek alone could keep you busy for a couple days with smooth ST.

    Centennial Cone also comes to mind. Park at Mayhem gultch and you'll have no problems making it a 15 mile loop and it's very smooth - almost mind numbingly smooth.
