    Some Boring Front Range CO Trails

    In reference to the I love where I live!!! thread I figured I would post some pictures showing those boring straight and rocky Colorado trails.

    A wet spring has sprung tons of wild flowers and vibrant green vegetation....along with near perfect trail conditions.

    Those trails and scenery looks like they suck!! Which trail is that exactly so I can try to avoid it in the future next time I'm down that way?....

    Great pictures, love seeing all the greenery (since you know we don't always get that much green in the Front Range).

    Obvious photoshop job. Where are the rocks? Where are the roots?
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    But look at all the people on those trails, if you want amazing trails with no people on them you need to head to California, ya know cause there's so few people there

    Looks like Ringtail trail from Roxborough up to Indian Creek (going from highest altitude to low in the picture sequence. )

    I too have been enjoying the intensity of the green, and the number and variety of wildflowers we have in the front range right now. Very beautiful.

    I have to contribute

    Just a few pics from some rides in the overpopulated, overhyped, boring mountain biking destination of Colorado.

    Yeah it's really hard to tell because almost any park you ride in CO could have all of those features. If only there was more variety... bike manufacturers would have an excuse for a new wheel size!

    I'll let myself out.

    Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming is even more boring, please don't come here and ride :P

    (Hey, gotta try to keep someone down in CO, haha)

    Those look like awesome trails, I haven't explored much of Colorado outside of the Fort Collins and Fruita area so looks like I need to get more adventurous... when I'm not riding boring Gowdy

    You know your Front Range trails....started from Waterton. A nice warm up before a large chunk of climbing in a short distance.

    Sounds like a good plan.....come in mid September and you could do something like:

    Buffalo Creek > Breckenridge > Vail/Eagle > Grand Junction/Fruita > Moab

    Steadyflow,

    This thread combines about 5 different threads all in one:
    “don't you hate that one guy..” - who lives in such a cool place
    “Passion about "Negativity"_AKA B!tch & Moan Thread!” About why it is so nice there
    “The "I almost died" Thread” - When I look at these pictures then go for a ride here
    “Annoying things other rider say” - A picture is worth a 1000 words (so Shut up!)
    “ I love where I live!!!” - yeah we get it, you are better than us!!

    These photos are like a dream to a Southern California boy, this is what I dream of when riding here, and the fact that you appreciate it only makes it better.

    Stoked for you.
