    Dream Rides

    If you had to pick 5, all day-ish rides on the FR/Summit County what would they be? Really interested to hear from you local experts.

    Soda Creek -> CT -> Gold Hill -> Miner's Creek -> Wheeler -> Burro (?) -> Peaks -> CT -> Soda Creek.

    Actually that would probably be more than a day for me now.

    Are you asking so your company can have more tour options? I'm not sure I want to divulge some of my favorite front range rides so that a tour company can exploit them.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Hahaha, no. No exploitation plans. Getting permitted in that area is next to impossible. I'd just like to ride up there myself this summer if I can get away.

    Hmmm....
    Stick to that one trail that traverses Colorado from Denver all the way to Durango.

    Cant think of the name, but I'm sure you've heard of it.

    You'll find some great epics along the route, I'm quite sure.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    WKD-RDR is right about the off-shoots from the CT, but for all day rides other than the CT, check out:

    Two Elk Trail, Vail, CO
    Keystone Gulch, Keystone, CO (CT Offf-Shoot)
    Buffalo Creek, Buffalo Creek, CO (CT Off-Shoot - Someone had to say it)
    Copper Triangle starting at Copper Mountain, CO (CT Off-shoot)

    There are more, but this should be a start.

    Nice list, but those are all 1/2 day rides.
