    My guess....Winter Park side of Rollins Pass, out and back. The last picture, I forget the trail name but I think I've been on it.

    After all these years I'm still able to ride/hike something new just about every weekend. I love CO.

    Agreed.
    For me, new rides are the barometer of a successful summer.
    I don't care if I don't get faster or more KNAR or ride farther, but if I get to ride new trails every year, I'll be riding as long as all of you old guys out there

    What happened? Didn't you have Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) picture? One of my favorite movies of all time.

    And...I'm stuck in my typical Waterton Canyon - based rut but this year I rode the CO trail from there until the signs made us stop. That was new (for me).

    Nothing compared to those CTR folks on their way this week though. One year...maybe...

    Since I just moved here in April, almost every ride so far this year has been on a new trail. I figure there are at least another 70 or so within an hour of the house to keep up the trend into next Spring.

    Frankly -

    I wish I rode enough to be in a rut.
