    Already looked at sorbs site and still have questions

    I have looked at the sorba site and a few other sources and was wondering if this is a good idea for a weekend. too much? tool ittle? not the right choices on trails? Trace, Kitsuma on my way up the mountain, a small loop at dupont including slickrock and burnt mtn. Black mtn and big m loop on sorba, still tryin to figure out the right way to hit slate rock(any help on that appreciated and up laurel and down pilot rock or cove whichever one it is. any help on that would be appreciated

    i think 1206 is closed still, so no laurel/pilot/slate anything,. i think the ATF is still lookin for early cuyver....

    What was your question? Can you write it in a complete sentence?

    I am asking if that is to much or to little for a weekend. or if i was missing out on some of the better trails and should revise my plans.

    "too much? Too little?" is very subjective, but you picked some nice options except for the closure of 1206 limiting access to Laurel/Pilot. If it was me I'd take all the maps and do as many of those as you can/want, adapting as you knock them off. Kitsuma's a quick option if you're coming up 40 anyways. It takes me about 1:30-2:00 depending on my mood and the trail heads are right off the highway.

    Anyway you do them, it sounds like a fun weekend

    let's see

    trace
    Kitsuma
    slickrock
    burnt mtn
    black mtn big m
    laurel / pilot
    slate rock

    That's like 5 smallish rides spread out all over the place. You may spend more time driving then riding.

    If you have 2 days then pick 2 rides that are big enough to satisfy. Maybe you can squeeze in a third is it's on the way.

    Driving. . . who said anything about driving. . .

    trace
    Kitsuma
    slickrock
    burnt mtn
    black mtn big m
    laurel / pilot
    slate rock


    Sounds like a killer loop to me but you might want to start with Kitsuma.

    Yeah, I was thinking a blackened tilapia burrito and a Galic from Pescado Burrito would be good about then.
