    Wooded Trails....

    After riding Deer Creek early Sunday morning for the first time in a while, i remembered how much I love that trail and its not just the rocks! The heavily wooded trails [especially after all the rain Sat. night] were awesome! Can anyone recommend something/somewhere similar? I've done EF, the upper loops at White Ranch, Buffalo Creek [where there are still trees standing] etc but am looking for something new...

    There are a few that I can recall that you haven't named.

    -Flying J Ranch - Fairly wooded
    -Alderfer/3 Sisters - Large parts can be wooded usually the upper
    -Maxwell Falls - Wooded up to the top where it spaces out a bit

    The top 2 are pretty fun - Flying J is short but you can loop that one for more runs.

    I did a really cool trail up in Breck/Keystone a few weeks ago - Groovi Uvi off of Soda Creek. Great way to finish a ride back into Summit Cove. Really cool, tight trees. And Blair Witch, of course.

    Locally, I like the upper half of Chimney Gulch and Lair o' the Bear. Tree riding is my fave. Oh - Meyer Ranch too.

    Best thing you can do is get out of the local parks/open spaces and get lost in USFS land.

    I was anti ski resort riding until we rode at vail this weekend. Some of the downhills go through awesome aspen groves with handlebar high plants everywhere, it is very lush up there right now.Then we did the grand traverse over to the two elk trail and ended in Minturn. Two Elk trail was amazing and obviously rarely ridden.

    Sweet, thanks for that. A mate of mines in-laws () just bought a place in Breck... I've been waiting for the novelty to wear off for the family before I crash my arse on the couch. But it's going to be soon!

    If you have a place to stay in breck there is no need to leave, endless riding in the breck area and everything is rideable from town, no car needed.

    Select the "Topo" option.

    Dotted lines are trails.

    Stay out of Designated Wilderness Areas.

    You're welcome.

    Warren Gulch

    Wooded Trails....-warren-gulch.jpg
    Wooded Trails....-maps-bomb-warren-gulch.jpg
    Warren Gulch is a great wooded ride. Once you park ride up the paved road a bit and turn left on Steve's Canyon Rd. After less than a mile later you'll see the trail head cross a small ditch on the left. Follow the single track up for a long way. When you get to the small group of houses at the intersections of the fire roads follow the road up. The fire road connector should be about half a mile. Eventually you'll see a small sign on the left "Bike Trail" and finish climbing. Its 5 miles up and then five miles down. Great ride.
    Narrow is the path to life, few are those who find it.

    Did you try those two yet?

    A few more due to peer pressure:

    CT to Green Mountain loop and back
    Lair O Bear
    Flying J - short but very tight trees
    Bergen
    Evergreen Mt.
    Gold Dust

    Sincerely,
    T Rex
