    Itching to ride some new to me trails

    I was thinking of riding the off road Copper Triangle early Sunday and looking for one or two riding partners. Let me know if you're interested. Estimated 7 hour ride at altitude. I'm riding a 2012 Trek/Fisher Rumblefish 29 with a Fox Talas 110-140 34mm chassis fork. I ride with minimal breaks and brakes

    From Singletracks "This trail is roughly 30 miles with 5-6 of those miles above treeline. The first couple of legs of this ride are on the Colorado Trail (Copper to Camp Hale via Searle Pass and Kokomo Pass), where it's almost all singletrack, while the return is mostly on 4x4 road, double track, and paved bike path."

    It's amusing that they don't warn you of the soul-crushing climb on Resolution Road.

    If you can manage it, do a point->point from Copper to Tennessee Pass instead of wasting your time looping it. Learn from my mistakes...

    And zrm - pipe down.

    Well, Bacon boys weakness aside, it is REALLY wet and I'm not recommending riding in Summit right now.

    There are some areas between Searle and Kokomo that will likely be *really* swampy. And the final descent down Wilder Gulch is pretty sure to be a quagmire as well...

    Don't listen to the naysayers- the climb up resolution isn't all that bad- if/when you do it- loop the mother- shuttling is for pussies.

    Do the dirty CU on one day, and then loop 2 elks the next- 2 awesome big loops.

    When you loop- do so from Camp Hale, that way you end with some good downhill from Kokomo instead of bike path from Vail pass.

    Can't guess on the weather conditions- if anything like the front range- gonna be a mud fest.

    This is good advice. Better advice would be to start at Copper and do it as a point-to-point to Camp Hale. Oh. Wait.
