    Doctor Park?

    It says "Not recommended" on the MTB HoF website, but they didn't always have timely updates in the past. Any chance it'll be rideable this Monday, 5/31?

    If not, could anyone recommend good singletrack in the Gunnison area that isn't at Hartman? I'll have had my fill Sunday. Bringing my XC bike for the race, and my 6" bike, just in case.

    A friend of mine ran up it last weekend, didn't run into snow, but many down trees. I would consider Needle Creek and Sun Park. Stand Hill in CB is dry along with some stuff up Cement Creek.

    As of 5/29 Doctor's park had 3ft snow in the trees, downhill is dry.

    I might be up in the Vail area this weekend. I would love to hit up one of my favorites while I am up there. So does anyone know if Meadow Mountain in Minturn is ridable yet? Or know where I might find any information as to whether or not is it ridable yet? Thanks in advance for any beta and sorry if I missed any current info that was posted elsewhere.

    As of 7-15, the Raggeds trail off McClure Pass has 100 or more downed trees if anyone is thinking of giving that one a go...

    So who rode GJ/Fruita this weekend? How are the trails holding the water? I had to cancel my ride yesterday to install a garage door opener instead.......

    My brother and nephew are arriving in state today and want to get a few rides in hopefully. I was planning to hit 18rd for sure, and then maybe LL or Koko another day.

    Dang. I better pack the long saw this weekend.

    Yes, steel is most certainly stronger than aluminum EVERY time.

    Horse gulch trails in Durango are good to go if you stick to the south facing slopes and stay out of heavily treed areas. there are couple muddy spots here and there, but they are easily carried around.

    What are the conditions like around Cortez in the first few weeks of May? I've been wanting to come to Cortez and I have the week of May 9th to do so if the trails are good. Assuming the weather is good, is there anything in particular (like big events) that I should worry about? I'm from Wisconsin and I need to get some riding in elsewhere while I wait for our trails to dry out.

    I rode sand canyon last night - and the trail was in perfect condition

    I started it as the sun went down so saw some of the ruins along the way before ,the sun went down - then it was a hoot as a night ride

    I'd recommend you ride that trail rather than phils - if you like non manicured singletrack

    Hard to say what will be dry by then. The northern and central Colorado Mtns have a near record snowpack and a late start to the meltout. That said, it's been mostly dry and warm for the last couple weeks and it's melting fast, but there is still a lot of snow to melt before any of the high alpine trails are good to go. Lower elevation stuff is opening up quickly though. In the least, I'd say expect snow drifts and some walking due to snow and mud on trails above 11,500' by then, especially on north aspect slopes.
