    Larry will probably be the best one to ask. Just email him.

    There's no real mud on DBB it's all broken down granite type sand & stuff.

    I think there are some sections that can get muddy but I have only been there once. I was going to say that it was almost all rock and crushed red rock but then I figured it would be safer to ask Larry, Squeaky, or Beastro.

    The first section that rolls along parallel to the Backbone before you head up Heart Attack Hill can get pretty soggy and sticky.

    That being said, DB is one of the fastest winter drying trails around.

    Frozen, not muddy

    I was out on a neighboring section of trail this morning. Trail was frozen solid and mostly covered with concrete hard snow pack. It didn't really warm up very much today so I would think it should hold for tomorrow.

    rode it thanksgiving morning

    and I'ld suspect that you'll be fine if you're off it by 9am or so. Youngs gulch(up the poudre) is prob your best bet if you ride after temps are above freezing. There's trails around carter/pinewood reservoir, and a few up hwy 34 that'll be a few degrees cooler. have fun.
