    Exactly what I was thinking; they serve as a fire break. Hurray for more trails!

    dancruz - was that it?

    From my place in town it looked like the fire burned into the top section of timber trail. Did you ride that far or just to Kimmons?

    I was wanting to check out the area, is Timber Trail worth while for a relative beginner in decent shape? I haven't really been able to find much info on the difficulty other than Lory website rates it moderate to difficult.

    Timber to Kimmons is a pretty easy climb. Not technical, save for a couple very short rocky sections. It's pretty much a middle ring climb for me, on a 32 lb bike. After Kimmons though it gets STEEP & technical
    Kimmons is a fun DH too, not to tech, but a bit loose.

    From the group picnic area to the intersection with Kimmons, there are few technical spots. Mostly you are just climbing on a relatively smooth trail. That part should be no problem for a beginner with who is in reasonably good condition. Beyond the intersection with Kimmons, Timber has some exposure and then has some steep climbing with some more technical areas. If you are feeling adventurous, you could come down Kimmons. It is a bit more technical than coming back down Timber the way you went up. All of the trails in the Lory valley are good, in case you start up Timber and feel it is above your comfort level.

    Jeffco trails don't seem to be as effective as firebreaks. Maybe its all those flammable waterbars.

    I gave you some positive rep. with all the fires n stuff we need more positive. Not sure what the rep stuff is for anyway, is it most rep wins or lowest rep loses. We need Strava for rep

    Thanks all..... the climb made me question my statement of being in "good shape" ha. It was challenging but fun. Seeing the burn area all over the trail, amazing it stopped there.

    and sgltrak your comments were helpful.....
