    Top 5 Front Range rides.....

    Wondering what was on peoples short list of favorite rides that will be rideable during the warmer days this winter so nothing west of peak2peak. I'll start.
    1. Jamestown loop is the bee's knee's for me right now.
    2. Horsetooth mtn park. Just found this yesterday. Pretty awesome.
    3. White ranch......ummm....classic frange saddle time.
    4. Hall!
    5. Walker.....home field advantage.

    Just for fun, but feel free to chime in.

    Dakota Ridge usually stays dry except maybe the stairs, and is always a hoot.
    Hall Ranch stays mostly dry, at least the rock garden
    Green Mtn area is usually dry
    Ummmm, MOAB.... just do a winter trip, way fun, no crowds
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    I like the winter trip idea. Maybe that's gotta be the new plan for the bad dump that is sure to come soon.

    Good job! Sweet stuff for sure.

    When I was up rode Devils, BlueSky & Indian summer and really liked it. Also did Youngs Gulch and liked that. Did Halls and that was the most fun trail I did - just continuous tech if you had the lungs. Might have done some of HOrse Tooth/Lory's but not sure.

    So my list would read........
    1 - Hall Ranch
    2 - Young Gulch
    3 - Devils/BlueSky/Indian
    4 - Mt. Lion
    5 - Aldefere/3 Sisters

    [size=2]Not sure if the last 2 are considered Front Range or not.[/size]

    Must speak up for trails below palmer divide. List can't be complete without attempting cheyenne canyon ie: (captain jacks, columbine, chutes, jones downhill); rampart reservoir. All are excelent rides and well worth the time.
