    Pueblo

    Greetings all! If anyone was wondering... it's raining (steady), it's muddy (sticky/soggy) and it looks to continue to persist (not for long hopefully). Give it day or so to make the trip worthwhile....

    If it warms up it will be PRIMO . I like to error on the side of caution when it comes to wet conditions since trail maintenance is the cross that I bear ! We will keep you posted on the weather, etc. Thanks

    What is the general flow of the trail system?

    Looking at the map, its imposible to tell.
    I'd like to ride for 2+ hours, but there have to be sections to ride a certain direction.

    My usual route is to park near the ranger station (near boats). I ride out South Shore and head for Pedros to Pronghorn to Voodoo. I do the loop counterclockwise. Then head back to Outer Limits and ride that clockwise to Pedros. Down Waterfall to logdrop to South shore. All of the canyons are great down... I use Rock Canyon to get back up to Arkansas usually, then come down to South Shore via the fun canyons (Skull/Hooters/etc) then back to the lot near the boats after playing in the canyons. That will get you around 30 miles. Most of the trails are fun either direction, except the trails between South Shore and Arkansas - most of those are fun heading down. Some you can climb, and some are hike-a-bike (if you are me). The trails in the canyon seem to be tougher on far left side of map Steep Tech and get easier as you move towards Rock Canyon. Hope that helps... have fun and make sure you park in the lot and NOT at Red Gate. There have been break-ins at the Red Gate lot.

    PS.... Might be out there today if the stars align.

    NP... There really isn't too much climbing on the long loops. I think I did a 26mile ride in 34x20 and had around 2000 feet of climbing. The more you play in the canyons, the more climbing you can get, I'd imagine.

    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Stars your way too. Enjoy the ride, fellas. And hit Hooters like a 14 year old with a Playboy. That's a dang fine trail.

    The weather is great.

    Last night we had a little moisture, however the ground is now dry, the sun is out, no wind, and 55 degrees.

    The weekend should be great.
