    Really enjoying the new route options up there. Rode it all Thursday night and they've all firmed up nicely with a little moisture finally, hopefully they stay that way. Liking going up good vibes and down snakeskin (funny since when we were doing the builds I totally thought it would be better the opposite ways). Haven't tried Second thoughts loop counter clockwise yet. Feels like clockwise is the way to go.

    Yeah, pretty nice. Gonna do Twist N Shout/Rocky Stumble today. For me I like Good Vibes heading back to the trailhead. As for Snakeskin, I like it also heading out to connect with Gunny Loop. I usually do Good Vibes/Snakeskin/Second Thoughts/Twist N Shout/Rocky Stumble/Road/Upper Second Thoughts/Snakeskin/Good Vibes, it's a nice ride. I've done Second Thoughts in both directions. I like these directions that I just listed for Second Thoughts, but that's me.

    18 rd was completely dry today. There weren't even any pock marks from the cattle. Not much moisture out there this winter. Let er rip.

    there were a lot of pock marks on Frontside, but I agree it was in very good shape.

    the TRAIL "Frontside", not the region. It accesses Zippity and Joe's Ridge.

    Just a FYI. The bike path from Fruita to Kokopelli is now fully open. I rode it yesterday but didn't have a bike computer, so I'm not exactly how far that route is. I'm guessing maybe only 6 or 7 miles from Fruita to the main Kokopelli parking lot.

    Any chance of getting a conditions report for 18 Road, Loma and Lunch Loops? No snow yet but close, I'm assuming?

    We've been getting rain on and off for almost the last 2 weeks (and 2.66" this month). Today I got .57" about 1/2 mile from the Lunch Loops. Hopefully we're back into a normal/drier October, but it will still be a day or two of drying until anyone can get back out riding.

    Thanks for the update. I'm amazed at your recent rain situation - been sitting on my ass here for a few weeks watching your weather waiting for a good time to get out there. Looks like now is the time.

    Lot's of rain for sure lately. People will probably go out today and ride. I'll wait for tomorrow and definitely next week.

    For what it's worth, 18 Road was absolutely perfect today.

    Just about all of them.... this is what I rode:

    Up road, down PBR.
    Up Prime Cut, down Joes - MoJo's
    Up/Out Western Zippity, across Front Side, down Zippity
    Up road, down PBR

    The only bad section was Front Side before you push your bike up to Zippity... and it wasn't muddy, it was just destroyed by cows.

    Mary's/Steve's/Wrangler/Rustler's are all suppose to be good. Mary's to Steve for sure. Lunch Loop most, but lower creek has water, still lots of tacky/muddy spots, do not go up the gut of Leftover Lane to get to Miramonte Rim, muddy/betonite.

    18 road and Mary's loops good to go. A little sticky yesterday, great today
    I would advise not taking my advice.

    How are the trails in GJ after the most recent snow? Clear?
