    thinking of a ride this Saturday. would appreciate any other info on Mary's/Lions or GJ area. Moab is possible, but a bit far for just a 2-3hr ride.

    Tabegauche was in great condition Feb 5th (at least below Widowmaker Hill).

    It's good above as well, just a bit more slickery.

    Trail conditions, February 8, 2011. After a stellar weekend of riding the trail with pretty darn good conditions last night's snow changed it all pretty quickly. Here are today's conditions:

    Looks like a week of sun ahead to help dry that out. Keep us posted

    Rode Sovereign at Moab on Friday, Feb 11th. Trail was in good shape.
    Avoid Salt Wash from Junction 1-4.

    Hey Western Slope Gang,
    Was wondering if you would think end of March would be OK to ride Fruita? I know it can be dicey, but just looking for some thoughts. Thinking of March 24th weekend.
    Thanks a bunch,
    Woody

    Dicey. You said it. Crapshoot. Take your chances. If it's a no go just keep driving west and south until it is.

    Yeah, it's a crap shoot but that time of year is when the odds start getting a little bit more favorable. Still, you should have a plan B ready and as mentioned, Moab isn't that far away, but it's no guarantee either - the weather and conditions are different there, but not that different

    Givin' this thread a bump.

    Any current knowledge on the state of the western end of the valley(Mary's and the like, Rabbit Valley)? I figure parts LL is good to go.

    I was stuck in town yesterday (GJ) and didn't make it out. It barely sprinkled around me, but looked ominous in every direction. Rain is forecast today, but I'll be damned if I can pick out a cloud right now that looks like it could produce rain.
    Uh-huh, uh-huh. Okay. Um Can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all about uuhhh, things. Uhh... the things.

    Talked to a rider at the LL lots and he said he ran into enough mud on high noon and miramonte to turn back. I rode up curts/raven to the moto turnoff then turned around and went back down raven, up around ali ali both directions and back down curts. No mud on the bike when i finished but it sounded like other trails need another week or two.

    Nice quick ride that left me enough energy to pull the kiddie trailer around when i got home.

    Saw in the local rag that search&rescue retrieved a biker at Loma after he fell off a ledge on Sat, Feb 19th. So looks like you can ride at Kokopelli, just be cautious.

    Probably the ledge on Mary's I 'm guessing. I always debate riding that section when I'm alone (especially at night).

    Miramonte was actually good to go yesterday. A little damp on the West rim, but the soil is sandy. Did not pick up any mud, no ruts. Everything else was dry - Kurt's, Ali, Ali Loop, Raven's. Looking down from Miramonte, Klunker looked okay as well.

    Here are some photos from today's ride. I went up Curt's Lane, over to Ali Loop, Around Miramonte Rim, up Coyote Ridge to High Noon. I had planned on riding High Noon to Pet-E-Kes, but it was a mess just after the intersection with Lemon Squeezer. I had talked to a gentleman earlier on the trail who said that Pet-E-kes was good to go, but that he walked parts of Lemon Squeezer due to mud.

    Update on trail conditions? Going to hit Moab this w/e. But considering also doing a Fruita ride.

    Also, any recommended trails? We are advanced technical riders so up for anything. Proabably like to hit something more flowy if we head out that way! Singletrack with some tech similar to gooseberry mesa would be sweet!

    Fruita Update 03/01/11

    Rode the Koko's last night. Rustler's, Mary's, Steve's, & Wranglers. All dry enough to ride (now) barring any new moisture. Although many chuckleheads have been out riding and really rutted things up.

    I believe 18rd is still too wet.

    Been riding Lunch Loops the past few days...they are dialed. As long as the rain stays away the rest of the week, the trails should be perfect this weekend!

    How about Rabbit valley this time of year. Coming out in 2 weeks and hoping to hit western rim as I haven't ridden it before. Are conditions usually similar to Kokopelli??

    We did Western Rim on Weds. and it was in good shape. Todays rain/snow wasn't bad so it'll probably be good tomorrow.

    Bumping for Fruita update... We're driving down (hopefully) from Glenwood on Sunday. How heavy has the precip been down there? Thanks. Hoping for good conditions at 18rd.

    .04 in the last two days.

    heading to Fruita this weekend - weather looks good and sounds like most of the trails are dry... anything we should stay away from?

    EASTER SUNDAY REPORT

    Way too much rain the last few days. Most trails must be mud bogs by now, especially 18 Road, and it is supposed to rain for at least two more days. Here's hoping it dries up a bit for riding next weekend (4/30-5/1).

    I rode Kokopelli (Mary's/Horsethief/Wrangler) this morning before the most recent rain... the trails were actually in pretty decent shape. Not completely dry, but I didn't have any mud on my bike when I was done. It started pouring about 2 minutes after I left, and I imagine that made the trails pretty muddy for everyone that was still out this morning.

    TR coming shortly.

    All you guys out in GJ/Fruita are lucky SOBs to have those trail systems out your back door.

    Was going to head out an hour ago from Denver area, but decided to wait till morning after finding out I-70 is closed in both directions around Vail. That SUCKS.
