    BEST ride in the Metro Area

    Hoping you can point me at the best dry ride in the metro area right now.
    It seems the possible rides right now may be:

    Apex
    White Ranch
    Matthew Winter / Dakota Ridge
    Green Mtn (although, the other rides are better in my opinion)

    Thoughts? If you have been up recently, can you also please provide what trails are doable in these areas, as I'm sure some are good, some are not. Going tomorrow morning.

    Thanks a ton!

    Why would he get chewed? He's asking a legit question, trting to find DRY trails, and about 1/2 the posts on here lately seem to talk about the same thing.

    You should head up and reconnoiter it and let us know!

    Whoa Egos!
    Obviously, I'm not too hip. Chewed? I don't get it....sounds pretty stupid though.

    I'll be heading up tomorrow to probably Kenoha pass with a fender mounted snow-blower. Seriously, i'll check out Apex or similar and post tomorrow.

    I'd at least add Mt. Falcon to the list you've got going. It was ridable a few weeks ago, and last Saturday it sounds like some folks found it in pretty good shape, including even one who rode Parmalee. There's probably still a field of snow past the shelter into the meadow, though. It may still be in pretty good shape, but maybe some ice has melted into mud. Possibly worth a look.

    It's dry and about 99% rideable. In fact, I rode it today at lunch. But, I don't think it's what I would call a MTB ride!

    mentioning cherry creek reservior reminds me of trip to moab last year. i met this guy on slickrock, looking for a good trail. word got word and next day we were riding porcupine together, after him telling me that he rides 3-4 times a week. after 6 or so looooong hours and pretty scary time, at least for me, we reached highway so i asked guy what trails he rides. cherry creek he says. i had to laugh so hard even though i was beat by sun and this guy skills. oh well, guy crashed so many times. to the side, backwards, over handlebars you name it.

    Link up the Dakota Ridge/Redrocks/MW loop with a spin down the road for some Apex and then come back up and finish the loop.
