    Green Mountain

    Anybody know how the trails at Green Mountain are looking? Also, anybody know any good loops/rides to hit there?

    Unless you ride early and it is frozen.

    DO NOT RIDE.

    Common sense, folks. Its going to be a little while.

    Just curious if you actually have been out there Rontele. With todays wind much of the mud has dried out. It is much better than last Sundays ride. Go early and you will be fine. If the sun is out and it is 50 degrees use discresion. We are real close. If it doesn't snow on Thursday, it looks like we can start riding in the afternoons next weekend on GM

    Green Mountain got banged up by the horses. Suprisingly the bike abuse is not as bad as I have seen. I think mountain bikers are getting smarterabout riding in the mud.

    Nope. I just rely on shoot at the hip internet speculation.

    Denver is finally starting to dry out. White Ranch is good to go to the bench and GM is "oh so close". I know Dakota is ready to go at any time.

    Lower Green Mountain from the Florida Parking lot is good. Rooney Valley is surprisingly good, Summit is a no go and Hayden could use a little more drying.

    The way I went on Greem Mountain was "leave from the Rooney lot, rooney trail to Florida. go back take Green Mountain trail to summit road and take the road back down". The valleys on GM trails still have some ice, but it is not that bad. I just walked it. I agree with mountaingoat, the summit can use some more drying.

    North Table was dry for the most part yesterday. A few icy patches, and windier than hell...but dry.

    I was up last Friday and if it is frozen it is ok up top, but there are some of those low areas up there that are a complete mess if it is warm out. Also the new single track around the front still has some areas that will be really muddy if warm. It was cold yesterday so things didn't really warm up. Yesterday I went up chimney to try and avoid the wind some and it is not worth it yet, pretty much becomes a sheet of ice at the first bridge.

    Yeah, it was pretty cold yesterday....not sure if it was below freezing but there wasn't any mud. Lots of tire tracks in what used to be mud. There's also some new signs up there marking some (not all) of the trails.

    Just got back from a ride up there and it has dried out a lot more since last Friday, still better when it is cold and it was pretty cold out there tonight once it got dark. Big improvement in a couple days that wind must have really helped...hopefully we don't get any snow this week.

    Rode Belcher's up too Sawmill and down Longhorn today. Belcher is good until the junction with sawmill. Sawmill is good until the ranger's house. A lot of snow afterwards, but it's a short walk to the parking lot. Longhorn is good (no snow) all the way down to the short uphill part leading the Whippltree jct. Whippletree is icy but good (will be a mud fest if the temp goes up)

    Ran GM yesterday and rode it early this evening (Monday). No mud on the loops I did on the south side. Even the saddle at the top was good to go. Probably want to stay off north aspects.

    Good news,

    Greenmountain and zorro are ready. A little icy on Hayden towards the top, but everything else is completely. No mud, not frozen. 98% dry.

    Now go have fun.

    Zorro is 100% dry.
