    Hartman Rocks, near Gunnison, has gotten good snow this winter -- so much that the locals have not only groomed the roads but also 'stomped' some of their classic singletrack down into a rideable state.




























    A short drive up CO 135 takes you past the Roaring Judy State Fish Hatchery (where on most winter days the avian population is largely devoid of hair) and into Crested Butte.



    Jeny and I started with a ride up Kebler Pass, up Splains Gulch, out to Ohio Pass, then looped back down via Kebler.






    Groomed roads are rarely worth writing home about, but given the stupid warm-for-February temps our local trails are nothing but unrideable goop soup. I'll take a road ride over no ride almost every day.






    Jeny, celebrating the way she does.














    We reminded ourselves of how long it's been since we were skiers by kicking and gliding a few k's in the heat of afternoon. Ow.






    The next day we wended our way up the Slate River drainage, following the packed tracks of skis, split boards, sleds, snowshoes, rabbits, and foxes as far as Pittsburg.






    Warm temps, firm trails, and big views to inspire.











    There is something very strange and very desirable about being able to ride this high at this time of year. As if being in the high mountains is ever anything other than desirable.










    We could have ridden ~85% of this easily on 3" 'plus' tires, courtesy of t-shirt temps and a lack of recent precip.










    Near the mouth of OBJ. Is this the year for that one?







    Hmmm...

    I have a seriously squeaky ball joint on my Tundra. Did I fix it last night? Hell no. The High Country is calling, so I picked up the white courtesy phone and rode MoGNARch Crest to South Fooses instead.



    Good decision. Followed a local motor down that mother scratcher and could barely hang on at his pace. Tinted sunglasses didn't help, we were coming down in blissful rainy twilight.



    The Crest has the usual cornice suspects. Fooses has a lot of snow up in the trees still, and a fair bit of water flowing down the trail. It's probably actually a couple weeks out from being truly good to go, but the Crest route proper is better. I believe shuttle service starts the weekend after the 4th.

    It's time. Get out there.
    The older I get, the faster I was.

    From the Facebooks, yesterday on the Monarch Crest Trail.



    Yes, you could break bones falling off that cornice, but rest assured you would have company. People will be riding it this weekend. And shuttles will be running at least for the 4th.

    This time of year there will be 3 or 4 drifts of that stature, the rest is dry like a popcorn fart.

    This was our crew on that same cornice from yesterday, me doing a little self-arrest with the M545s.



    We encountered one other snowfield prior to the cornice, and reports are that there is another snowfield that's not nearly as bad between Fooses and Greens intersections. And the trees after the Greens intersection are pretty muddy but rideable. Otherwise yeah... the Crest is dry as a popcorn fart.

    I'm still pretty much new to Denver (year and half-ish). If anyone has some high country rides planned for the upcoming weekends, and don't mind an extra rider, I would be more than pleased to join ! Riding a megatrail, slow paced uphill and fast downhill. I'm a technical terrain fanatic (ex-trial guy), so comfortable anywhere, but still, I don't really want to ride these by myself.

    Jones the Fourth

    This summer I finally found myself in the right place at the right time to join the traditional July 4th expedition to 13,215.

    Thanks local crew, it was HIGHLY awesome. Enjoy some pics:













































    Looking forward to getting high some more over the next few months.

    Cornice is looking pretty flipping traversable for this time of year. Nice work!
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    Well, one of them does indeed involve such shenanigans... Either that, or we were rolling into Georgetown, England?

    Otherwise it really was that purty, eh?

    Yep it was almost a shame we didn't have to/get to use the ice axe and rope Mark carried along. "Better to have and not need", etc. Trucker gets credit for sniffing out the easy (well, easier) way up, and I happily followed.

    The Notorious Big LAF Ride (Lenawee, Argentine, FATS)

    Klucks requested "something new, something big, something high" so I put this little doozy together. Twice to 12500 and once to 13200, who hoo, this ride had plenty of everything that's awesome about mountain biking. And plenty of hike-a-bike too. The evil MGE would love it, ha.

    And now, a special note for any future LAF wannabees who may find this on Strava:There is actually NO trail down from where you see we left the road near Ganley Mountain. We were following somebody else's GPS track, but discovered there is simply no trail there--not even an animal path or creek bed--despite us staying right on that other GPS trace.

    So don't try following our trace either, unless you're comfortable with pure alpine bushwacking for about 2 miles. Instead, I'd suggest continuing down the main road and taking the "normal" connector up to the cabin and the start of FATS.

    I'll also note that you could make this into a loop by climbing about 15 miles and 3500 ft of pavement (mostly bikepath and Hwy 6) to Loveland Pass. That's where we actually started, despite me not starting Strava until A-Basin, d'oh.

    Enjoy the pics!



    MsFoldsInHalf dropped us off at Loveland Pass at just under 12k, and we enjoyed a few miles of free paved downhill to start. Why not!?


    The climb up Arapahoe Basin is a mix of nice singletrack and steep service roads:


    The view from the top of the ski area at just below 12,500 feet is downright Legandary:


    Klucks takes on the always-excellent, deliciously chunky but flowing Lenawee descent:


    Klucks and T5 roll on down towards the trees:


    At the bottom of Lenawee, we took Peru Creek Rd up for a few miles:


    Then came the real crux of the day, a 2.5 hour hike-a-bike up to Argentine Pass on a beautiful, but steep and rubble-filled singletrack:














    Finally topped out around 13,200, with 14ers Grays and Torreys in view just across the valley. Remarkably, it was so warm that we were sweating instead of shivering at this kind of altitude for a change:


    "You've seen one high alpine lake, you've seen 'em all" - Full Trucker (the week before, regarding a different but seemingly equivalent body of water)


    Acres of wildflowers were popping up everywhere above treeline:


    The widetrack descent on the east side was giddy fast, rock-surfing fun! Well, it was fun on my full suspension bike... the other two on hardtails were slightly less enthusiastic, ha!


    T5 lives for this splashy stuff:


    We next climbed back about 1000 vertical feet on a nice easy grade, and ended up back above 12,500 feet near Ganley Mountain:




    We were planning to follow a trail I'd found somebody else's GPS track of from here down, but, unfortunately there was no trail. So, we improvised:






    Eventually ended up at this historic cabin, and found some actual singletrack, hooray:




    The upper part of the FATS trail was pretty slow-going due to lots of downed trees, but it had some fun moments:




    The middle, flume trail-ish part of FATS was in better shape but still had quite a few downed trees and blockages.

    But the lower, steep and exposed parts of FATS were almost all clear, and made for an outstanding rowdy plunge to Pavillion Point:


    The sweet, steep, benchcut singletracks down to Georgetown were still fun a week later, even though we had to stop and navigate a few times this time instead of just following high-speed maniacs who knew where they were going like last week, ha:


    We rejoined our shuttle driver in Georgetown almost 10 hours after being dropped off, having logged a measly-sounding 31 miles. But with almost 6000 feet of hard climbing and almost 10000 feet of descending, much of it above treeline, this was one heck of a fine day of exploring the high country on bikes!

    South Park / Burning Bear

    Another weekend, another high country adventure full of breathtaking views, ridonkulous hike-a-biking, and rollicking downhills.

    Somehow these things seem to always go together.

    This particular voyage was inspired by one of the funniest yet totally accurate trail reports of all time, linked here on ridemonkey.

    Thanks also to Death March Dave for his report on mtbr and for laying down the GPX I lifted from strava. We pretty much followed his loop exactly, except we took Bacon Boy's advice and arranged to shuttle the highway section.

    Now, enjoy another set of pixels...


    Once again, I talked MsFoldsInHalf into playing shuttle driver, and we borrowed a subtly logo'ed vehicle for the day. We started about 9:15am from Guanella Pass. Since Bierstadt was right across the street, MsFolds figured she'd go climb up a 14er while we rode bikes:


    Er, did I say rode?


    Wait, I think I see somebody actually pedalling for a few seconds!


    A short and inadvertent detour led to a nice view of a square lake:


    Above 12k for a couple of miles, big cairns stood as our only guides:


    Mid July now, and it's getting harder to find snow to trudge through, but we did score a few tracks:


    All in all, a pretty groovy situation:


    Our colorful companions prepared themselves for the first big downhill of the day, a plunge of 2000 feet in 2 miles:


    The trail was barely there, but at least it was steep. What a hoot!:


    Yee to the haw!:


    Some sweet singletrack reappeared around treeline for Klucks and his mighty Hayduke to enjoy:


    Finally reached the infamous broken log bridge, and slow *almost* went for it:


    Somewhere on the next leg up of the stupidly-steep elevation profile, I caught the group actually pedalling for a few moments:


    But really, this day was supposed to be challenging, so let's get back to that, shall we?:


    About six hours in, it was time for a short trail nap:


    Then one more nasty push, to finish off South Park Trail 600:


    Luckily, that led to an insanely-fun, pinballing blast down the rubble-strewn Red Cone road, where we gave back some 1800 feet in 3 miles. Squishy bike recommended for maximum enjoyment:


    Our lagniappe was Burning Bear Trail 601, which proudly proclaims itself to be bike legal:


    Of course "Bicycles Permitted" does not necessarily mean bike friendly, so we enjoyed another hour or so of hard grunting and pushing to the top:


    But man, what a sweet downhill payoff to the finish line! (think Mountain Lion without the creek crossings):




    We arrived at the lower TH about 4:30pm, having covered a measly 23 miles, now totally understanding the classic ridemonkey report. Still, this one came in 2 hours shorter than last weekend's ride. Gotta love shuttles, eh?

    I totally got high and it was all totally ride-a-bro. At least on the way down. Miner's Creek.

    Obligatory flower shot


    Popping out of the woods, the trail went up to that saddle


    Lake Dillon. Neato


    At this point my legs were toast


    That little black speck is the top of the Kensho chair, peak 6.


    Good times!

    Three years, three weeks, and a day or so after the ride on Searle Pass that inspired this very thread I found myself back again. Our good friend hirschmj was in town visiting from Tulsa, so we rounded up a couple more friends including slow and set out to get some high country riding in. The forecast called for cool temps and overcast, cloudy skies but no rain until late in the afternoon, which would be perfect weather for our excursion. I didn't get a whole lot of pictures, but snapped a couple worthy shots along the way.

    Here we find slow in his natural habitat, making his way along the CT just shy of Guller Creek.


    The hearty crew on break at Searle Pass. We did not venture over to Kokomo Pass on this outing, as this was as much a social gathering as a mountain bike ride we found ourselves pressed to get back to other obligations in Denver.


    That's a big ass cairn!

    Wife and I spent all day getting high above 12000ft from Copper to Searle to Kokomo and back. Perfect conditions for it.

    Took a few days off work and bummed around Breck.

    I typically hate that area during ski season. But midweek during summer, it was pretty sweet.

    From the same ride, yesterday. Great crew, glad you and the missus could join, señor. These aren't my photos (I'm in them) but ya'll should enjoy, regardless...

    Thirteen-two. Dropping.



    My saddle is low, but I'm so high.

    Jones Pass 2018

    My third 4th in a row spent on the divide with this ever-expanding oxygen-deprived crew, and it was amazing as always. Particularly good cornice this year too. The riding and company are great, but the picture taking opportunities are unsurpassed. Enjoy more highness:

    Hi Mike! Greg from Houston. We're planning on Crested Butte in Sept. If that doesn't work out, we'll be going back to the Fort to stay with Boon. Hope you can join us for some riding in either place!

    I forgot to post our pics! the wife and I got a rare 2 days away from the kids, so we packed the camper and headed south. stopped in Salida and rode Monarch to Fooses. on our way, we ran into a girl riding who's father was picking her up at the bottom of Fooses and said he'd shuttle us. so we rode Fooses for the first time. what a blast!

    Monarch was amazing and beautiful, like it always is. perfect weather, not too many people (it was Thursday morning), and great riding.

    Answering the question from BE stage 5 participants last thurs 'do people even ride that trail?'.

    Having done it both directions, your CCW is the correct choice IMO.
    If it's not powered solely by you, it's motorized.

    We were going clockwise, I can understand the longer descent on dirt going west to east might make for a better ride if shuttling. But I was happy not to be climbing all the way up the bike path from Frisco to Copper. I have ridden it from Copper to Vail pass before though for a CCW dirty copper triangle...

    It was some fine weather
    While I saw quite a few Folks turn back in the alpine stretch, the lack of preparation by a number of riders was a bit shocking. A lot of folks had skimpy, single play roadie rain jackets and were soaked, quite cold and asking to borrow insulation from other riders. One couple had no rain gear, no insulation and no tools. Just chamois and jerseys. The shuttle service is great and I was happy to use it, but, ****.... I’d have to believe there are a lot of people getting over their heads because of it.

    It seems that there have been lots of changes that have contributed to many unprepared folks being where they shouldn't be.

    We encountered some challenging adverse conditions of a different type the last time I rode the Crest. Looks like our photos are from the same spot.

    Oh man, I've been ignoring this thread all summer... but don't you worry I'm still getting HIGH, man. I have a few other rides to upload from earlier, but figured I'd chuck this high-country classic in the mix to add a little fall color to the thread. A little Kenosha Pass out-n-back with my favorite lady, followed by posting up on the side of 285 for a post-ride beverage. Enjoy.
























    **I debated on posting this here or in the 2018 Fall Colors and settled on here because I'm selfish. But also I'll x-post a link.

    #GetHigh4Graham

    Revisited Wheeler Trail to Miner's Creek in Breck a few weeks back, as part of a big ol' group ride put together by Will who started the Go4Graham Foundation, a non-profit working to raise awareness, fight stigmas, and break the silence surrounding mental health and depression. Good group of folks, and a bunch of strong riders on the day. What this ride lacks in mileage it more than makes up for in HAB, views, and just plain difficulty, really. At least, I think so. YMMV.

    About half the crew, somewhere on Peak 9 road getting ready to climb.


    Wheeler Trail makes it's way towards Wheeler Pass in the high alpine.


    Dramatic backlighting is dramatic.


    Less drama.


    Give'r!


    Has the pushing started yet? For some folks off the front... yes.


    There. Go there.


    Dropping in the west side of Wheeler Pass towards Copper Mountain. Destination: Miner's Creek Trail.


    Back on the east side of the 10 Mile Range, after hitting the Miner's Crest. Lots of sketchy switchbacks preceded this moderately "tame" section.


    Making our way down Miner's Creek, we passed through a burn area that wasn't there last time I rode this. Surreal.


    Miner's Creek Trail is filled with rocks on rocks on rocks. Add a bunch of speed to that, and you get some pure, unadulterated, smashing fun. Well, fun if you're into that kind of thing... which I am. Afterwards we connected to the Peaks trail and rode back into Breck... a mighty fine ride indeed.

    Monday: wherein Full Trucker posts tantalizing visual media rife with the beautification derived of Mom Nature's finest hues, accentuated by altitude of magnanimous proportions. Topping out at 11,300' of elevated bliss, I submit for your measured consideration Crested Butte's Trail 401 in peak leaf peeper glory, an infinitely attractive redhead, and one ugly dude who can barely corner.

    Alpine Tunnel loop above St Elmo was exceptional this weekend. Singletrack at 11,000ft is breathtaking!

    Nice! How was the main singletrack descent down to the jeep road? I did this the opposite direction years ago, and always wished to make a loop of it in the proper direction. I'm contemplating this weekend. I'm guessing the jeep road climb from St. Elmo had lots of aspens?

    Not asking for much, just primo fall color and magnificent descending with a healthy splash of skinny singletrack at high altitude.

    The decent down from treeline was super smooth and nice. Some hike in the above treeline sections but well worth the effort.

    Elk Park - Moraine - Jones - Buckhorn shuttle (gasp). Two weeks ago. ~6800ft of descent and 1200ft of climbing (others extended the trip and did more of both). Started around 11'900 and finished at about 6400'

    Took a ride up Old Fall River Road. Didn't take many pictures because it was a slog on the way up and I didn't want to loose my momentum by stopping. And the ride down was too fun to stop for photos. Amazing scenery though I didn't see any animals except for a few birds.

    I did snap this at the top:

    I've got nothing witty to say....

    I saw this on the Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association's FB page earlier. Photos were shot on June 9, 2018 and June 9, 2019

    I got high a bunch in August. Most were by bike, but a few times were on foot.
