    Does it have to be in the Front Range? Because that rings a bell, but not in the front range (not even in the state, ahah!)

    I came across that pic while perusing the archives. I bet a lot of you have ridden that but never looked back up to see it like in the pic. Doesn't have to be on the Front Range but at least a place that most here might have ridden at one time.

    And, no, I didn't ride that, I parked my Flux up there and jumped down for this pic.

    I bounced off that tree while going OTB the only time I attempted the Notch. So many things have to go right to clean it, not having the tree there is just one factor. Once I stood overlooking a pack of riders I was with, one after another crashing either midway down or right at the tree. Nobody cleaned it. There are videos of riders cleaning it, making it look easy...hah!

    Yeah... I've never actually attempted the Notch. And at this point I'm too old (read: wise) to try it.

    The notch was my guess straight away when you posted last night, but the tree still being shown there was what threw me.

    I hadn't had a chance to glance at my photos from the first time down there 10+ years ago during a Turner meetup, @xcguy you had a cooler of water at the very end of Enchilada which was most welcome

    smmokan nails it! Bit of a trick question since it looks like NK and other nearby trails but it's not "really" Buffalo Creek...

    Here's a popular Front Range trail that's kind of tricky, since this section of trail was rerouted in the last few months (it used to be on top of the hill to the left, then it dropped down the other side):

    I've been tempted to pull the wheels and put the bike on my pack at that point and then hike to Long Draw or south to Trail Ridge Road.

    The view from what trail?

    It's been instructive for me to check out these old old images shot with ancient cameras given what I have to shoot with these days (job related). I didn't know how good these little cameras were back then.

    I thought the angle was a bit off and wondered if it might be from the climb up to Upper Ahab instead.

    Thanks for giving us the answer. That thought briefly crossed my mind, but I've only been up there once and that was more than a dozen years ago, so my memory is fuzzy. This shot must be looking SE and the snow covered mountains are the San Juans instead of the La Sals?

    Looks like it could be at Bobcat Ridge or Devil's Backbone, but not sure of an exact location.

    I think this is the dead tree just out of the parking lot at Bobcat Ridge. It is visible from the concrete path right near the trail head info kiosk and before the trail turns to dirt near the picnic shelter.

    Somewhere in New Mexico? I've driven by a volcano near Capulin, NM east of Raton several times. I've never ridden in NM, so I don't know what is out there.

    Capulin is the volcano you drive past. If you keep going, you'll end up in TX. The pictured place is actually the second largest canyon in the US - Palo Duro.

    Nope!

    Couple more hints:
    - the middle left of the photo has a subtle clue if you zoom in
    - this trail is open to bikes, but it's rarely ridden for several good reasons

    That was a bit of a tough one...Rattlesnake Gulch trail at Eldorado Canyon State Park (short, steep, loose, doesn't connect to anything, pay parking). Figured someone might recognize it after all the attention about options for the potential multi-use trail. You can just spot the railroad tracks in the middle left.

    Speaking of which, comments on the proposed Eldo to Walker bike-legal multi-use trail are due by Sunday, and I know some other user groups are submitting comments concerning the limited parking capacity (Eldo already has severe parking problems): https://www.bouldercounty.org/open-s...er-connection/

    P.S. Here's the view looking the other direction...

    I feel I should have gotten the rattlesnake gulch! Hopefully the crumudeons at boulder open space will consider opening Fowler to biked so access can be had high plains/prairie to peaks/rocky flats/any part of dirty Bismarck. This would keep new (bike) traffic out of Eldo...

    The north trail option (sunny, south-facing side) is the one they're considering opening, not a south option, so opening Fowler wouldn't happen. Right now it's a question of "open to bikes" or "closed to bikes" for the north option, and so the more "open" comments they get the better!

    This is a tough one but a side-ride that you should do

    Normally riders are heading down the "main" trail but this is a side trip to...well...

    Attachment 1228124

    (left click the pic)

    When I first rode over this I thought it was a painted or drawn starting line for some race but, no, it's a thin quartz line embedded in the sandstone

    (left click the pic)

    When I first rode over this I thought it was a painted or drawn starting line for some race but, no, it's a thin quartz line embedded in the sandstone
    It's on the spur that goes up Bull Canyon to underneath Gemini Bridges. It can be ATV madness back there but the time I rode it I was alone.

    Correct again. I think it's called Mountain View Cave. The short story is, on one of my first rides there I came upon a group of about 25 riders attempting to ride up to it. From the flat area below the climb starts basically vertical which is where 90% of attempts failed. If you got past that section then, well, it was almost vertical where everyone spun out or tumbled backwards.

    Except for the rider who got all the way to the top, easily, in middle chain ring. Go figure. That's when I learned that there were riders with freakish leg strength and that wasn't me.

    I've made a handful of unsuccessful attempts at that climb and watched my cousin tumble down it backward.

    Trail 409 CB? I feel like I saw that somewhere, but I can't remember where. I feel pretty strongly that the time of year was fall though. I also feel that it's most likely in an aspen forest. Maybe not a full blown huge aspen forest, but at least some aspens in a forest of trees. Gosh this is pretty hard. Did you take it on a weekday?

    Water tanks hidden behind the trees on the right by the trail entrance. Road to the left continues to La Sal mountain loop road.

    All correct except the CB part, its a trail called Dark Hollow in SW Utah (off of Brians Head). Pretty obscure I know, my bad. I'll try another.

    Nope. Let's just say this is a trail that a lot of you have ridden recently, for the first time.

    I thought I'd track down where the water for the tanks originated. I thought maybe a pipe stuck straight out of the hill. I hiked up behind the tanks and found a shallow ditch (with a pipe? I can't remember) that parallels the road for a ways and ends at a wet seep on the side of the hill, maybe 200 feet from the tanks.

    Fun fact: I was talking to some lady in some store in Moab and it turns out she grew up on Salt Flats Road and her dad was the one that came up with the idea of the tanks to water his cattle. Small world.

    Cool! I had never thought to check the source of the water. That lady's dad made good use of that seep.

    On another related note, I always still fill my water at Matrimony Spring even though the new(ish)rest area at Lion's Park across the road has bottle filling stations. This is partly due to tradition from nearly 30 years of Moab visits, but mostly because the water tastes much better from the spring than from the municipal supply.

    Years ago I was exploring onion creek (before the improvements) and came across a series of pipes leading water from a seep into a little chicken wire fenced garden in a sandstone depression. I assume it was marijuana garden from years ago as it was fairly well hidden, difficult to access and on a patch of sand that would be of little agricultural value.

    I wonder if Moab's water contains any radioactive traces from all the uranium mining and subsequent cleanup that's been going on for 50+ years.

    Nope, nowhere near Monarch Crest. A hint - most people are hiking their bike up this heinous hill and this is the view over your shoulder. Another hint - while this is really steep, the other side of the trail is even worse (with a lot more rocks), which is why most people are hiking up this thing!

    Is that by Blodgett? If so, I've only seen it from a distance, and it sure seems like it's a mere fraction of the size, so I'm guessing I'm not correct but I'll submit my answer anyways.

    Iíd like to submit my guess on that as being the giant green tank in Sterlings Mega Trail System.

    In jest btw. I have no idea where that is.

    Since we have no takers Iíll toss my guess(es). Eagle trails (ice rink etc) or S mountain trails (salida). But we all know itís really limon. (Edit - looking at the sage limon is out - definitely Trinidad)

    No takers on this one either - never been but would hazard a guess of Bryce Canyon/hurricane or sw Utah somewhere. Sweet intense btw. I hope thatís on a wall somewhere (or still being ridden)

    Nope! Way closer to home. And that old Intense has served me well, still in business. That photo was taken maybe a month ago.

    Lubes, please come clean on the location of the green water tower. The anticipation is becoming too much to bear; I can't sleep, I can't eat and I haven't showered or masturbated since. Surely I'm not alone in this either. Bless the people with the truth, and we shall follow you to the ends of the earth for all of time.

    'Trinidad' is closest so far.

    Water tower is at the end of the loop I do.
    Bridge below is just a few hunnerd yards uphill from that tower.

    Yeah, temps just kept going up and up the closer we got to town. I emptied out my water to a much faster rider who was kind enough to hang back with me, the slowest rider around, then I bailed down the road.

    Remember when the "Notch" was called "Upper Body Bag"?

    I really need to get up there riding looks on point. Every time I plan the trip I think LHOHV is 30 min closer and on the way. Iíll just stop there instead.
