    Betasso ranger tweet from yesterday:

    I would hope that when the trail is muddy people would avoid causing trail damage and wait until conditions improve. #Betasso boco_trails

    Rode Buffalo Creek this morning:

    Nice Kitty is 90% dry, with a handful of short wet or snowy spots near the bottom of the climb.

    Buffalo Burn is about 30-40% snow covered, but it's all rideable and not much mud.

    The CO Trail between BB and Shinglemill is about 50% snow, but it too is totally rideable with virtually no mud.

    Shinglemill has a couple of wet spots up top before the road crossing, but then is totally dry all the way down until you hit the last short section in the trees.

    543 (the main road) is mostly ice and snow, but isn't really all that slick since it's so warm out.

    Sandy Wash is almost totally dry, all the way up to the creek crossing where it hits BJ. Lower Sandy Wash is 100% dry.

    Everything west of the road is closed -> Timber, Kimmons, Howard, West Valley.
    The open trails are East Valley, South Valley, and Shoreline. Those were mostly dry this morning.

    Blue Sky, Indian Summer, Devil's Backbone, Horsetooth Shoreline, Lory South Valley, Lory West Valley, Reservoir Ridge, and Maxwell were all good this morning. Couple of damp spots in Lory, but most everything else was dry and dusty and hardpacked.

    I rode across it yesterday, only riding half of each loop (i.e. from four mile and all the way across and down the link trail). There were a couple muddy spots up top, but i only really saw like 1 spot where tires were really digging it at all. The beginning of the link trail (the swoopy part before you really go downhill) had some tire ruts from previous days.
    The majority of the mud was on canyon loop. Benjamin link, benjamin loop, and the fourmile loop were all either good or melting ice. It should be great on sunday (no bikeson saturday)

    Chimpex is g2g. A couple slush spots climbing chimney. I rode down the gut then hopped on Hard Scrabble. Two slushy sections on the gut then hardscrabble, pns and Argos are dry. Hikers and trail runners are out in mid season form with dogs off leash, standing in the middle of the trail and getting startled because they can't hear you approach duel to headphones.

    Betasso is good. A few small sections of slush left but I did not find any deep mud. There is a large tree down on the back loop that you need to hike around, other than that it was great.

    Buffalo Creek Update 2/15/17

    Rode Charlie's cut off to Sandy Wash...bone dry and dusty!

    Many of the trails are 98% clear, with the exception of the Colorado Trail which always takes longer to melt.

    You know I was about to head back to BC today but I think this sounds better! I'd like to try some new Terrain out. I'm going to head to Devils backbone today and then maybe head over to Horsetooth or something. I'm hoping to navigate some good routes but I appreciate any additional suggestions you might have for when I return. Thanks

    How many miles are you looking for?

    I rode Coyote Ridge to Blue Sky, plus Indian Summer (and back) and it was almost 20 miles. Totally dry, and totally empty other than a few hikers close to the Coyote Ridge TH.

    Bobcat Ridge is super fun too, but has a STIFF up the Powerline Trail that keeps most people away. The descent on Ginny is totally worth it though.

    Devils backbone to blue sky to the tunnel under the road. On the way back take a right after the fast descent to a dry water crossing on Indian Summer then back to the Devils backbone parking lot is over 3 hours of riding. Devils backbone is very rocky/chundry so be prepared to kinda motor along with a few minutes of just riding on 4 inch rocks. Blue sky is awesome flowy trail.

    As of Saturday at noon, Enchanted was still pretty slushy/muddy. We rode down about 50 yards before turning around.

    Lots of dry dirt around elsewhere. Falcon has been great for a week now.

    Nice Kitty wasn't bad yesterday (Saturday)- maybe one or two inches of snow, some bare, some creamy 5" drifts. Not bad on a fatbike, maaaybe doable on non-fat if frozen.

    Upper White Ranch hike today- kinda the same. The last section of Belcher Hill really wasn't bad and had both fat and skinny bike tracks (don't know about lower). Other trails, especially if north-facing, had a decent amount of snow and ranged from firm well-packed to soft and post holed. Very little ice.

    Rode Hall Ranch this afternoon:

    Bitterbrush was perfect up to the bench, virtually no mud anywhere. After that, I only made it about 100 feet before it got really sloppy and nasty so I turned around. I'm guessing there are stretches of muddy trail before you get to the (closed) loop, but I didn't bother checking for myself.

    Lyons Update for Thurs. Picture Rock and Nelson Loop are still closed. Antelope is back to open and in fair condition. Past the top bench on Bitterbrush is a mixed bag here and there as Smmokan mentioned. Expect conditions to improve with more sun and warmer temps. I'll keep this updated as I hear more.

    Backbone has been open to the Blue Sky drop in for a few days. Stuff along the front side of Horsetooth was still soft yesterday afternoon, but not bad. Lory State Park is closed to bikes and horses. Blue Sky is closed.

    This is a new system being used by the City of Fort Collins and Larimer County to show open or closed trails:

    Thanks for always providing great info on Lyons trail conditions! I was thinking of hitting Hall but I'll hold-off for now. Sounds like a Green Mtn day?

    Heil Ranch report for Saturday morning:
    Wapiti is in excellent shape with only a few damp spots.
    Wild Turkey had more damp spots, a few short muddy sections, a couple spots of standing water, and some short snowy sections.
    East side of Ponderosa was just like Wapiti.
    Picture Rock is still closed.

    Riders are reporting very wet and muddy conditions along the upper section of the Ginny Trail at Bobcat Ridge. Use is not recommended.

    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during site or trail closures.

    Lair of the Bear is rideable but sloppy in the shaded tree areas. Apex is fine. Mt. Falcon is clear to the top shaded area then packed snow. Any trail with shade is going to have sloppy slushy muddy stuff.
    More people than I've ever seen at Mt. Falcon today.

    no problem. Did not ride enchanted but I'm pretty sure its not worth it. Grubstake has the slushy slop but you can ride, not great though. pick and sledge to sluicebox to apex is good to go just a few small muddy parts

    In case anyone is headed north this weekend:

    There are a couple of trees down on the Spring Creek trail in Horseooth, between Wathen and Herrington. I also hear another rider say that yesterday's wind downed a tree on the Westridge Trail in Horsetooth.

    Upper shaded trails in Horsetooth and Lory State Park have some slush and some wet spots, but most everything is in good condition. Everything along the front side of Horsetooth Reservoir is dry and perfect.

    I hear Devil's Backbone, Coyote Ridge, Blue Sky, and Indian Summer are mostly good, with a bit of moisture hanging on in the north facing drainage on the north side of the Indian Summer loop. Bobcat Ridge is also supposed to be mostly good, with some moisture at the top of Ginny and over in Mahoney Park.

    I'm guessing it's gonna take a bit more time for buff creek to dry back out?

    I rode up to conifer on earlier today on a road bike and there definitely is still a good amount of snow in the shady bits past 7k or so.

    Apex is mostly good to go but I'd steer clear of enchanted. Its maybe 75% dry but the wet parts are sloppy. I crashed hard due to the mud. Wish I'd just gone back down Apex at the top. Rest of the gut is perfect

    EDIT - As of Tuesday evening, Enchanted is good to go. one or two mud spots but mostly perfect.

    Hall and Heil need moisture. They are both bone dry with the exception of just a few spots.

    Well winter is over. Trails are dry and a tad dusty. Busy as Grand Central station on certain trails. Get a bell bikers. We are at the point we all should have them. Bike shops should sell all bikes with them. Plus a trail etiquette course would be great. So many less experienced bikers out in the front range. Enjoy but don't take it for granted that the trail will always be open if we don't follow basic rules.

    Cheers!

    You don't need what? Is this the too cool for school crowd? Hate to break it to you that mountain biking is mainstream.

    Wow, I'm not the only one that sees this. I rode up on a bro checking facechatogram at the bottom section of Apex Saturday. Just a bummer in general, ride safe and have fun.

    Same here- coming down Picture Rock last week (mid week, during the day) I came up on a guy stopped in the middle of the trail with headphones in, checking his phone and not paying an ounce of attention to anyone else. I just don't get it.

    While I move out of the trail to check email or answer calls. Some of us are still working while we are riding and need to check emails or answer calls from clients. So, this guy should move out of the trail, don't always assume we are using social media or some of other waste of time, we might be working while we are out on the trail.

    I listened to some girl on a business call while riding up Chimney. She kept pedaling while a line of us stacked behind her. She did the same thing again while going downhill at Apex this time without the phone call but earbuds still in.

    City of Fort Collins put these up in several open spaces almost a year ago. They help a bit, but they haven't eliminated the issue.

    I never assumed what he was doing.... it was just the fact that he paid no attention to his surroundings and couldn't hear me when I yelled to him multiple times. Unfortunately it's like so, so many others out on the trails around us these days. Even when people think they're disconnecting and getting away, they're not. (by the way, I'm also guilty of doing a little work on the trails too, but I make sure I'm pulled over or sitting off on a rock somewhere)

    I don't know what's worse... People with their earbuds not caring one bit about other people who might be behind them or coming up on them from one direction or the other, or people who have their speakers on loud forcing everyone on the trail to hear their crappy "music", whatever it is. I guess it all comes down to "me-me-me". I'm important, I'm having MY fun and the world can kiss my ass.

    Light rain last night here in the west side of Fort Collins. Wind this morning appears to be drying things nicely.

    Based on polling a bunch of Weather Underground stations overnight (Thurs + Fri):

    ~1/2" of liquid precip in the Lakewood-Golden area

    ~1" down by Chatfield

    ~1/4" up by White Ranch

    Newz from Pueblo?

    I'm thinking of going down there, but it's a long drive if there is any mud.

    edit: just checked their site, and it looks like it was ok today. Then checked the weather, and it looks like rain tomorrow. Can't we catch a little break?

    We've had a few reports in from riders at Hall Ranch today. Expect puddles and drying conditions but pretty good dirt. Conditions should be top notch for Sunday!

    BC update:

    Nice Kitty, Shinglemill, Charlie's, and Sandy are all good to go for now. CT Section 3 is pretty mucky so it'll need a day. It's rideable to Shinglemill but don't expect to come out clean. Didn't even bother with Scaggy. That lot was totally empty.
