From Kokomo down to Hale there were 1-2 drifts, 2 downed trees but the trail was in great shape otherwise. Resolution still hurts if you are inclined to suffer.

    Heading out to the FR on a road trip. Where to go? Original plan was to hit Fort Collins area first but I see they're getting rain on the radar among most other places. What's good? I can go anywhere... even the western slope if i have to.

    Things dry out quick around here, once the rain stops.

    Rained all night in Evergreen and still coming down at 10 am. I'm guessing the trails are a mess

    If anyone has a fun life and decides to inspect some NTB today, please share trail status. I don't want to be a dick and mess up a trail, but I'm in desperate need of a ride.

    You mean NTM? If anything i'd think the side stuff on NTM might be ok. As in E and S facing stuff. Maybe. Got a lot of rain. I may go check it out tonight and bring running shoes as a backup plan.

    Rain just stopped in Golden about 30 minutes ago and it is still cloudy. If the sun comes out soon things will dry quickly, but North Table will likely be greasy. I am planning to ride the road bike today

    This from Larimer county natural resources Facebook page as of about 12:45

    "Devil's Backbone OS, Horsetooth Mountain OS (the Upper Lot), Soderberg OS (the Lower Lot), and Blue Sky Trailhead all now open thanks to the sun drying things out.

    Eagle's Nest and Red Mountain Open Spaces remain closed until further notice due to muddy trails and damage from the rain."

    Hall is probably going to have perfect dirt. The sun has been out for a while now. Remember, Antelope trailhead access is closed weekdays thru 8/9 but it will be open on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

    Hey all sorry for a basic question but what are some good places to go for a beginner? I've heard Devil's Backbone and Blue Sky are good to start but anything closer to the Greeley area?

    Blue sky is okay. Devils Backbone is very lumpy and may be a bit too much for a beginner.

    Sorry, not any closer to Greeley, but the lower Valley trails in Lory State Park are perfect beginner trails. Park at Soderberg parking lot and go north.

    Pawnee grasslands? Never ridden it but it is USFS and should be really beginner if not too sandy

    Just got back from riding Buffalo Creek this afternoon. Hero dirt abounds. A few puddles here and there but nothing to be concerned with.

    Not to rain on your parade (hey at least it's not real rain) but there is a horse event in Buffalo Creek tomorrow (Saturday 8/2) as posted in a different thread. I've ridden there during those events and it's not too bad, but not great either.

    I ended up riding from Lory to Devil's Backbone. It was surprisingly dry in places. Still some mud and standing water in the creek bottoms.

    I didn't see any snakes, others did though.

    Ended up crashing less than a mile from my house on the spring creek trail. That's what I get for going fast on a MUP. Got some wicked road rash I'm nursing today.

    Out of towner staying in Estes this week. Anything near here might be rideable tomorrow or Thursday? Hall or Heil maybe?

    I did see the other thread about access to the trailhead at hall ranch being closed and know I have to go down hwy 7 to access either one.

    i rode hall a couple weeks ago and it was in great shape. access to hall and heil from estes shouldn't be a problem. the last few times i have done the drive they have had either 66 or 7 closed, but not both at the same time. i think they have been alternating which one they open each day. either way, you can get in and out of estes everyday. have fun!

    Antelope trailhead access is closed until Friday evening. Hall and Heil are both in great shape. Come on in the bike shop in Lyons (Redstone) and we'll be happy to bust out the maps.

    as an out of towner, you wouldn't want to access Hall from Antelope anyway. But yeah, drive to Lyons, stop into Redstone, and ride Hall (if you want rock garden) or Picture Rock (if you want a longer xc-type ride) or do both, as the trailheads are maybe a mile apart.

    How's something like Walker doing? It does ok with the rain we're getting this afternoon (if it clears up), right? Heard FC was pretty rutted/wet still from Tuesday.

    Lindahl- Walker should be primo. I just rode Betasso and it was in perfect condition (with just a few small puddles) less than an hour after the rain stopped.

    Anyone know if Mustang trail is open again on the White Ranch Trail system? The Jeffco website says it is closed but that was last updated on 6/5/14 so I am not sure.

    I was there last week and there's a sign before Belcher by the upper parking lot that says it's closed. I never really ride Mustang so I couldn't confirm 100% but I do the Rawhide loop and there's a similar sign about Wrangler' Run and Wrangler's Run is indeed closed.

    FWIW... I rode Hall this afternoon (finished at 3:00) and the Nelson Loop was on the verge of being muddy, with several very large puddles. Bitterbrush was mostly OK and Antelope was slick in spots.

    However, as I was leaving the lot it started pouring, so I would definitely avoid Hall the rest of tonight. It could be pretty muddy in the morning too if it doesn't clear up soon...

    Hero dirt at Betasso today.

    And every time I ride there, I am so appreciative of the one direction rule. It was crowded today, as evidenced by my time on the 3 link trails. But I felt entirely alone on the 2 loops, passed 2 people and was passed by 1, and that was all I saw (of riders, also saw a fair amount of hikers).

    Rode Hall Ranch this afternoon and it was a mix of hero dirt and big, deep mud puddles. Most of the mud was on the Nelson Loop- like usual- but overall it should be awesome by tomorrow morning.

    Any guesses on how White Ranch will be tomorrow? I don't mind getting all muddy, but I don't want to trash trails either (and all those water bars & rocks can probably get pretty dicey when they're wet!). I've ridden there only once a few weeks back when it was dry.

    If it's probably going to be too wet, do you think Sawmill is likely to be too muddy to bother bringing little kids bikes if we do a quick overnight "backpack" starting midday (assuming adult bikes stay homeÖand assuming we manage to get a camping permit)?

    Thanks!

    Pretty much everything on the front range is going to be perfect today and will be dry and dusty again by Sunday.

    Who rode Kenosha today (Sat 9-13)?

    I was hoping to ride it tomorrow (Sun 9/14); what are the trail conditions?
    Is it worth the drive out there?

    Kenosha was in perfect shape on Thursday, plus it was in the 60s and sunny the entire ride. I'm sure it's still in great shape.
