    Jeffco Trail Condtions!?!?!

    Seems like the snow we got over the weekend was light enough to not be an issue, but not 100% sure. Green Mtn/Dakota ridge WAS good last Friday, just wondering if that's still the case.

    i hear some of the stuff around green/mathew winters is fairly ok, but not sure if it'll stay that way......

    hall was great the other day. unless we get a dump in the next few days (looks unlikely) it should be good to go over the w/e, next few days. i'm assuming backbone is the same.

    i'm looking to head down to dakota/red rocks maybe thursday/friday, if it remains good......or on the weekend, if i get up early enough to avoid the crowds. guess i'll ride whatever is dry! at least we can hit the roads if trails are still wet.

    heading up for some snowhoe camping in the indian peaks mon-wed next week!

    To answer my own ?
    It was very good conditions on Green. Better than last week even. So it follows that Dakota ridge is good too, though I'm willing to bet Matthew Winters will be sloppy/icy in places.

    hmm, then i think i'll try and for sure go down there thursday ro friday, and hopefully get some other folks interested in going down to the park to goof around with kristian. or, hell, i'll just go down myself. more fun with others, though. helps get my kodak courage up.

    edited to add.....looks like friday will be the better day around denver temp wise. or hit it early enough thursday before anoy of the predicted snow hits.

    Damn...my schedule's getting so tight with planning for AZ and actually AZ (leaving Friday night). So Friday's out for sure. May night ride Thurs with FRM on the Northern front though, and planning on night ride tonight with him. Fingers crossed, no more kitty's.

    Today, anyone?

    I think I'll go out this afternoon, if anyone's interested. Location unimportant, and undecided as of yet. Maybe down south to Dakota, or north to Rabbit Mtn, which I've never ridden. I'd like to go up to Backbone, but don't want to drive. Maybe I'll just go back to Hall. It's been, like, two days since I've been there.

    Green mtn was completely dry at 1 today, which was really surprising since there was an inch of new snow this morning. I would guess that the majority of the red rocks area is also in good shape.

    Good job!

    I rode Zorro to Dakota to Red Rocks to Morrison Slide etc., etc. back to the Green Mtn lot.
    It was all good. Morrison Slide had some snow but it was no problem.
    The ride was on Sunday, it was a bit chilly, but I only sa two other riders walking down a section of Dakota.

    Where is Rabbit Mtn? and Backbone?

    Edit: to add the day I rode.

    Rabbit Mountain is very near Lyons and the Devil's Backbone is in Loveland, right next to Larry Mettler's Mtn High Cyclery...I'm sure the trail review section has more info.

    Thanks, I found 'em on the Trails Review section.
    Backbone got some good reviews, is it worth the hour+ drive from Denver?

    Probably not by itself. It's about 7 miles long, and has some very fun techy sections. If you drove on a weekend, and also hit up Horsetooth Res. and Lowery State park in Fort Collins then it'd easily be worth it. Negative side to that is the trails will be more crowded then.
