    Any decent riding today on trails near Denver? Dedisse, 3 Sisters, Fying J....?

    Just curious if anybody knows of trail conditions at some of the closer trails to Denver today? Anything not super muddy?

    Thanks!

    With these warm temps, we are getting some serious melt -- trails are ankle deep with mud or the snow is super slick and slushy. We hope that all mtn bikers will take care of our trails and please stay off of them while they are in the muddy/slushy phase. (super early morning frozen mud rides are advised if you must get out!)

    However, Pueblo trails are in super fine shape!!!

    That's what I figured, just curious if there was something a bit closer.

    Thanks

    Temperatures above 8000' already over 40*F. Conditions on Bergen Peak were excellent yesterday: no mud or slush. But that could all be different by now. I'll second Yetigirl - hit the trails early before they thaw. I'm back to doing laps at Pine Valley The only mud there is the first 1/4 mile on the ol' railroad bed.

    Sections of Buck Gulch were getting soft and some of the transitions from snow to dirt to snow were getting an icy edge.
