    Section 6 colorado trail

    Is section 6 of the colorado trail, Kenosha pass to breckenridge, rideable yet? I'm supposed to ride with a friend this Saturday but wonder if there is still a bunch of snow.

    I'm guessing the dark trees on the north side of GA Pass are gonna be WEEKS off still. Could be wrong, though...

    GA Pass to Breck.

    early July 2009 - 10-12 bigazz drifts
    early July 2010 - good to go
    early July 2011 - don't think it'll be pretty

    Segment 4&5 of the CT on the east side of Kenosha all the to the wilderness boundary near Lost Park campground is an excellent option that doesn't get much love here. Haven't been there yet this year but it's all rideable much sooner than Kenosha to Breck.

    July 2003 - some goofball parked a brown pickup *on* the trail about two miles from the pass on the breckenridge side

    even better were all of the cigarette butts dropped on the ground around the truck while the goofballs tried to figure out how to get their junker out of a place they never should have been in

    it reminded me of the billybobs from texis near silverton that stranded their canyoneros on some (previously) pristine alpine tundra the year or so before
