    Getting there.
    Horse Gulch road up to Raider Ridge is good to go. Some of the Meadow is good, but not all of it. Telegraph won't be ready for several more weeks... snow stays there longer.
    Sailing Hawks (Dalla Mtn Park on maps) is supposedly good enough to ride.
    Test Tracks (Overend Park) will probably be a while still.
    Animas Mtn and a lot of stuff east of Telegraph are always closed til mid April.

    So, fairly slim pickings for now, but things are just starting to open up.

    These guys do a good job of updating conditions, especially i the early spring:

    I'm planning a trip to Durango for the second week of April and I'm wondering what how rideable the trails will be by then. I'll keep a eye n that web page.

    Everything 'in-town' should be good to go by then, for sure.

    It is currently raining, which will help but then it needs to dry. Looks like saturday-sunday will be nice. But still only low, sun exposed trails. Horse gulch meadow and recently telegraph, the ridge, sail hawks, and some test tracks. Not a whole lot but whats riding is riding good!
