    Lake pueblo should be good to go on Saturday. I'm going there on Friday so I can post an update Friday night. There could still be a little snow left in the shaded areas of some of the canyons and arroyos.

    Thanks kberkle!

    Rican: I'm thinking of leaving the Springs between 8 and 8:30. let's see what kb has to say about it, and go from there.

    I'd say we're on!

    From the lakepueblotrails website:

    Trail Conditions:
    The trails are back in excellent condition. 02/05/2010.
    Some snow still in the canyons and shaded areas.


    Yippee! I'm planning on heading down between 8/8:30... any suggestions where to actually park/start off? I've never been.

    THanks -Eric

    Rican, would you like to meet somewhere? I don't mind driving down there, and have a strap-on rear bike carrier.

    Kool,

    However is best for you, I live right of Hwy 85/87 in Fountain behind Loaf & Jog.

    Last time I parked right across the South Marina, there's a big parking lot.

    Picked up the yearly park pass today, $60.00

    I should probably do that too... in the interim, is there a "day pass" or something that I can get?

    Looks like i'm getting to this a little too late but for what it's worth the trails are great. The shady trails ( waterfall, lower dog, skull, hooters) are still icy but everything else is great.

    The yearly pass goes on the windshield like a decal, I already placed on mine.

    I been buying the pass for the last 5 years to go jetskiing, I didnt know about the biking trails until I joined this forum , now it will get use more often

    I will pay for the daily pass tomorrow is only $6.00

    On Tuesday, I used my whisk broom and cleaned off most of Freeride, Lower Dog and lower Skull, but it snowed again and I haven't been there since. Once traffic gets on it, the rocks can get a bit treacherous without a pre cleaning, so watch yourselves!

    As a side note, Eric and I have been busy working in the canyons, so Freeride can be followed all the way down the creek bed now (meaning new additions), so no need to jump back on the trail part way down.

    In addition, a sweet short section in the bottom creek bed of Stonehenge, my clairvoyance for the line, and Eric's grunt labor!

    RicanMTBr and me got in a nice little 12-miler this morning, the trails were in outstanding shape--no mud anywhere! Little snow and ice here and there, but honestly, mostly dry. The temp when we got started was kinda chilly (both of us had trouble getting our hands warm), but after about an hour, it was really nice.

    Thanks for showing me around Andres, I'll be buying a season pass, well worth it! Great trail system there, and we didn't even try the more gnarly technical stuff--that's next time!
