    There are trails on the east side of town. I've ridden them, but with a local. Go into Absolute Bikes, and they will point you in the right direction.

    I recommend going into absolute bikes and picking up the free mountain biking magazine. Covers alot of the local trails. The also have some good maps of the local rides.

    Was there last weekend......

    Lots of snow up high - monarch (on top) at the gift shop has a TON of snow (10' approx) in the parking lot....

    crest trail will be 'down' for a while until the snow melts...

    best of luck and talk to the locals - they'll know the 'lower rides' best...

    Hit the Midland trail.
    You can get maps at the top of Trout Creek pass on your way in.
