    Coming to the Denver area; trail recommendations?

    I'll be coming up from Austin this summer on business, plan on getting in some high-elevation singletrack riding while I'm there.

    I won't have much time to acclimate, so mostly (or all) downhill will be ideal, something similar to Doctor's Park (outside of Crested Butte) for comparison, technical is good. I'll rent an AM bike if I don't bring mine.

    I have friends there that can shuttle me if needed (with a 4x4 if necessary), prefer to keep it within 2hrs or less of Denver.

    Suggestions?

    I think this thread will be informative. Many of the resorts discussed are within 2 hours of Denver. Trestle (at Winter Park) is well thought of on this Forum.

    Isn't/wasn't there a Sticky at one time with the exact title of this thread? If not, why wasn't there one? And also if not, why isn't there one? That about covers it.

    Yea we definitely need a sticky with what trails to ride what time of year and what elevations and how far from Denver.
