    Pueblo

    Any news on Pueblo? Did they get any snow from this storm or do you think the riding is good to go? Haven't been down there and itching to go.

    No snow so far. H20 is high on south shore trail. Drop higher into the gully (on Broken Hip) if continuing on to south shore trail or avoid first spur after dropping off top of South shore heading back up broken hip or continuing on to south shore. You'll see what I mean when you get there. Trails are actually pretty dry right now, we could use some moisture . VooDooo still has not been rerouted, H20 remains high here also. However, a reroute will be ready for the upcoming race . Permanent high H20 reroute still needing CDOT approval . Hopefully this makes sense! Anyway, have fun

    Me too! I know NOTHING about this place. I mean like nothing. Seen a lot of great pictures though.

    Any info on/links to the basic route, where to park, trail mileage, etc. would be very much appreciated.

    Park at the reservoir/boat parking and not red gate... There have been several break-ins reported at red gate. I linked a thread that has a trail map. There are maps at the Kiosk generally (near parking)... You can ride for 20-30 miles with Voodoo open and not do too much doubling of trails...

    looks like pueblo is good for this weekend again

    Where the trail hits the water on Voodoo, can you just bushwhack further upstream and cross further up? Or is that frowned upon (or just not possible)? I definitely saw the beginnings of a "trail" forming last weekend.

    Is there a spot on South Shore that is impassable / under water? I am unclear on this...

    There's no way to get across the old water crossing on Voodoo at present time (I checked it out this morning.) The "trail" you saw forming last weekend led to a narrow frozen section that you 'could' walk across a few weeks ago, but that ice is long gone. Afraid we're going to have to wait til the reroute is complete...

    Grizz, nothing on the South Shore Trail is impassable. The water has risen at the intersection of South Shore and Broken Hip, but you can just ride up Broken Hip for 100 yds or so and there's a spur (shown on the map) that will take you around it.

    Thanks wilbury and muff for the reports as usuall, great job.

    Man the res is fillin' up. I guess they'll let-her rip and keep the good folks in Kansas happy this sping once the snowpack lets loose.

    Water rising

    Like said above, We rode south shore from the Ark point campground, had to turn left onto broken hip to avoid rising water.

    I am working on the rerout of VoDoo, the park manager is OK with the new route we just need CDOT to approve their section. They are OK with the race but wanted more info. on a temperory high water route. I am meeting with CDOT on Monday, if they approve, it will only take a couple days to complete. So keep the faith!

    The A-loop at the Arkansas Point Campground is open. That's the campground on the south side of the rez at the base of the trails. There is a ranger station there and a kiosk that should have maps. The showers are not open, but the bathrooms are. They have electricity also (the camp sites). The trails were in GREAT condition yesterday. Hopefully, the weather will pan out for ya'. Have fun

    "Be prepared for goatheads......"

    Like.......

    I run tubeless, carry spare tubes and a pump ...you'll be fine...you might flat

    OR

    don't head down there....they are growing out o cotrol everywhere and are unavoidable....you will have a terrible time picking them out of your tires, shoes, gloves and ass.

    I know the sun hasn't had a chance to bake them to dust yet but are they really a bother???? I dont' plan (never really do) to be off the trail although it sounds like some of the more steep areas have several lines down.....but I really just plan on getting out of the land of snow and spin the wheels some....maybe a nice climb....try to get 20 or so miles in.

    Funny, there was a thread about this very subject maybe a week ago:
    pueblo thorns??

    Pascoe, assuming no rain/snow you'll have a great time. I live in a snowpacked place too and Pueblo has been a real oasis. Cheers.

    goat head crazy

    You guys are getting radical! Really, check out the thread "Pueblo thorns" and read what the locals who ride here every day have to say.

    Current Conditions?

    Ozzie and/or Muff, what are the conditions for this weekend? We got 3-4 inches of slurpee snow today up in the Springs, so there went any riding here on Saturday. Well at least the conditions I like to ride in!

    Thanks.
