    Current trail status?

    Any word on the conditions right now? I'm looking to ride in the afternoon on wednesday and I'm wondering what would be the best bet so as to not do damage to wet trails. GM? DR/RR/MW? WR? Apex/Chimney?
    Thanks!

    I'd count WR out. The lower half was a mud pit today.

    Yeah, I'd also appreciate any updates on trail status. I'm hitting the trails or the gym or both. Fiendish!

    Evergreen

    It's always good up in Evergreen once the snow melts. Sandy trails with no mud. I know it's 20 minutes away and all...

    Just got back from the first Hog-Back to Matthew Winters ride of the season. I parked right off I-70 and Morrison exit and did the big climb which got a little muddy towards the top. The first section of the hog back was excellent on my bike and my pike 351 took those rocks to town (pfft,pfft,pfft-sound). The next hill on the hog back kinda sucked the big one. Forgot how rugged and rough that section is. Not even really worth trying to ride some of the section. The rest of the hogback was excellent and I almost forgot how much I like that trail. Matthew got somewhat muddy on the climb up the back side to the top but going down was all good. Timing for weather was excellent.

    South BoCo

    The Doudy Draw / Eldorado Mountain trails are dry other than a few puddles. The wild flowers are out and amazing.

    I've cleaned most of the top but I don't think I'll ever be able to finish the top half of the stairs. I know some do it though. Freaks of nature and skill.

    Was it any better with some of the sand washed off the rocks?

    Trail status - Lyons/Ned

    I rode Hall last night; trail is in decent shape. Started at the Antelope TH and there's some small ruts from runoff but nothing too bad. The top has a couple of puddles but all in all it's in good shape. I also rode West Mag up in Ned this past Saturday; trail is in great shape; tacky and fast...

    Cheers.

    The area has some new trails south of Boulder - like Spring Brook, Prarie Vista, Flatirons Vista. http://ci.boulder.co.us/files/opensp...y-brochure.pdf
