    Pueblo North Shore - Freeride (trail names?)

    Friend of mine was telling me about some great Freeride and North Shore trails in or around Pueblo. Can anyone tell me the names and if they're rideable right now?

    I'm sure this has been answered before but my searches didn't come up with anything.


    thanks!

    There is really not many "north shore" wood features that you talk about. down in Ptown There is the Freeride trail that has an ok sized wood bridge crossing. Really thats it other than a few planks that you ride up to get over ledges. Really what you ride Pueblo for is the techinical rock stack features that are all over the place.

    Heres a pic of the freeride bridge.

    There is very little at Pueblo res that most people would describe as "North shore". Still a great place to ride.

    Trail conditions.

    If you consider all the techy rock moves in the canyons to be "North Shore", then yes, there is plenty.

    Well... I would imagine when most people think "North shore" they picture something more like this:



    As you can see, North Shore requires a Linkin Park soundtrack.
    I have never once been riding at Pueblo and heard Linkin Park start playing so I think the comparison is not valid.

    You will want to download the map for the "south shore trails" and focus your interest to the black trails (as in black diamond). Note, currently the black trails are snowed in as they are generally in canyons and take a while to melt out. The page below is updated nearly everyday this time of year so check back frequently for updates on conditions.

    I hear Linkin Park after suffering head trauma. Either that or Linkin Park causes head trauma, I have never been able to figure out the association.

    "North Shore" trails in Pueblo

    I may be off base here, but I think the OP is actually asking about the "Pueblo Res NORTH SHORE" trails (as in the geographic location of the trails within the Res - not the "North Shore" style trails). Within the Pueblo Res, there is the North Shore marina and South Shore marina and I believe that is the reference to North and South Shore down there.

    Jaydude's reference to "north shore" wood features was a bit of a leap from the OP question (I think).

    My .02.

    That said, I have only ridden the South Shore trails at the Res - but always wondered what the trails are like on the North Shore at the Pueblo Res.

    I'll take the Linkin Park soundrack on any trails...

    The Lake pueblo north shore trails are all listed as easy/intermediate.

    From what I hear the North Shore trails are not worth it. I could be wrong. Any intel out there on the "North Shore System"?

    could someone recommend a good route on the south shore system? obviously it depends on what you like but there must be a couple of trails that link together to form a nice ride with some variation on the available terrain.

    also, looking at the map of the south shore, which way do the trails slope... down towards the top of the map or down towards the bottom? i just like to orient myself! thanks.

    If "North shore" means really hard DH, then The San Isabel area is where it's at. No non-natural stunts, but it will stunt your mind.

    Most canyon trails flow down hill to the lake, but actually its a reservoir. Not sure why its called a lake.

    A good route depends on your definition of good.

    Look for the black colored trails to go down. Blue to go up. Avoid Roller Coaster IMO. My favs are Hooters, The Dogs and Rattlesnake for the down. This is after you take the Duke from the pay/pass parking lot. The canyon trails are super short and doesn't take much to explore or to go back up and try something else.

    That probably doesn't make any sense. But then again I just had 2 margs from Jorge's. I feel pretty good. But I won't in the morning.

    Exit 27

    This trail is off of exit 27 on I-90 in WA, east of Seattle in the Snoqualamies. The video makes the gappers look smaller than they are in reality.

    That's the exits off I-90 outside of Issaquah. Ask an LBS, everybody knows about them.


    edit... already answered... apparently other people in colorado know about it too.

    There were a couple "north shore" type stunts at the Nature Center. Until some red neck hit them with a truck. And the dirt bikes tore up the wooden kicker.Pueblo North Shore - Freeride (trail names?)-sunset.jpg

    I'm hoping to find some dry "sweet drops" hence the "Freeride" and "North Shore".

    hope you feel alright this morning!

    thanks, just the info i was looking for. at the risk of sounding like an idiot, i assume that the lake/reservoir is at the top of the south shore trails map?!

    I think "North Shore" refers to North Shore Vancouver, BC including Cypress Mountain, Mt Fromme and Mt Seymour...
