    It is still winter here. High stuff is still under snow and they are still skiing at Keystone. This time of year, all day rides with lots of scenery are not easy to find, unless you hook some things together. On the north front range, you might try a combination of Devil's Backbone, Blue Sky, Coyote Ridge, and Bobcat Ridge, with some pavement connectors. Plan 45 minutes drive from Boulder.

    Tech stuff on Dakota Ridge. Nice loop with Mathews Winters / Red Rocks. This is on the west edge of Denver.
    The area I mentioned above (Devil's Backbone, Blue Sky, Coyote Ridge, etc) in Fort Collins / Loveland would allow for several lengthy loops and is dry right now. Mostly XC with some techy stuff at DBB. See this thread for front range conditions on many of the trails you are most likely to be able to ride:
    Conditions: Hall, Bobcat, Backbon, Coyote, Maxwell, Horsetooth...

    I'd hit Hall Ranch in Lyons, about 20-30 minutes from Boulder. No free-riding really, but some pretty fast fun technical stuff. I'd consider the lower section up to the bench light to moderate AM riding with some fast XC stuff after that.

    Dakota Ridge is more of the same and alot of fun. A little more challenging but pretty comparable.

    there is some XC now

    if it dries out enough, but this time of year is not the best for mtb'ing. We get a lot of snow in March. It may snow here in Boulder 2 times this week. Snowed sunday, supposed to snow again wednesday. Its like that until end of April.

    The weather in CO changes soo much you just never know what it'll be like when you get here it was 74 on sat and snowed that night and in the 30's on sunday There is snow today wed the 5th and by the week end it will probably make it to the 50's. in the past month I have ridden on Hall Ranch, Devils Back Bone, and Rabbit Mountain. There was some snow on Rabbit Mountain last time I rode.




    Just keep an eye on the weather.

    Back in the day that section was considered "mountain biking", I guess I was AM before AM, sweet!
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...
