    Moving to Denver,where is the best MTB place to live?

    I am moving to the Denver/ Boulder area at the end of this month. I am accepting a job in Broomfield. Can you guys give me your opinion of which neighborhood is best to live that is relatively affordable, for a single guy, and who loves to ride his mountain bike?

    ^ Nice one..

    KevChe, you can use the link below, but here are some trails a tad bit south in the Golden area- North Table Mountain, White Ranch, Chimney Gulch, Apex, Dakota Ridge, Centennial cone. Half are closed at the time because of flooding however.

    Can't really help with neighborhood stuff because I am new here as well, but at least you have some trails to look up and compare how far you will have to travel.

    Moving to CO, need advice on good location

    One man's "relatively affordable" is another's "outrageously expensive".

    You'll have a hard time finding a decent place for under $1000/mo anywhere within 30 minutes of Broomfield that is also close to trails. Housing is really, really tight right now because so many people were displaced by floods.

    Arvada is probably the least expensive housing left near Broomfield that has decent trail access. It is suburban hell, but housing is less expensive than Golden or the areas near Boulder.

    Decent places in Boulder run $1200 and up, way up. Golden is the best place to live for trail access, but prices are not far behind Boulder, and Golden is further from Broomfield and the commute is hellish in winter.

    I feel it's best to live indoors when not riding, or camping.

    Just stay west of I-25 and you will be good..

    If I was single, no kids and had a decent job, I would definitely live in Golden or as close to Golden as I could get..
