    2-3 hours at Corner Canyon...

    What should I hit? I have limited time available, and I need a little advice on where to park/what loop to do. I have done Jacobís Ladder, but I donít remember what I climbed to get there. Any advice?
    Sorry if this is a redundant thread...

    So...it's winter.

    Trails are covered in snow. They do groom some of them and others get packed down by snowshoes. You'll need a fatbike to ride those trails as they don't appreciate ruts or post holes. If you ride early when it's frozen you could get away with riding a normal bike. For access to the good groomed trails, parking at the potato hill trailhead usually works. Keep in mind this is all weather dependent. Too warm and there will be mud.

    This query is for the end of March, the day before I hopefully ride with you!

    End of March could still be iffy in Corner Canyon as far as snow/mud. The north side with Rush, Clark's, Ghost, Canyon Hollow, etc. could still be messy. You could go around to the south side and take 3 Falls or Neph's up to Jacob's, back over to Peak View and down. Most of that would be more exposed and likely dry. There are a couple spots to park at the bottom of 3 Falls, but better off parking over by Lambert and riding the short bit through the neighborhood to get there.
    You could also do loops of Zooropa/Virtigo/Levitate too if you'd rather. They are south side and pretty exposed, should be plenty dry by then.
    It is possible the end of March could be dry everywhere up there, you just never know.

    I see what you did there. It's fun to be snarky when you don't provide details. Your op has no date and is written in present text. Next time you have a question, provide all the info or you'll get the same kind of answer.

    No worries. Btw, you can do just about all of CC in 2-3 hours. Make sure you include vertigo and levitate on the south side.

    Corner Canyon now has about 80 miles of singletrack.

    I sure hope SOME trails around here are good to go by then. The snow this year...
