    Actually those two are Southwest and Southeast.

    If you check out www.utahmountainbiking.com and look under the Vernal area trails, there are quite a few in that area. Also you could check the website for the local Vernal shop Altitude Cycle. I think they have a bunch on area trails as well since they are the ones who created most of them. I know there are some trails in the Flaming Gorge area as well.

    Fleegman, while you are perusing the internet, maybe you should look up "joke", "humor", "sarcasm" or "tongue in cheek". After that, go back and read Pedalfaraway's post. ;)

    As for the trail conditions and whether they are starting to open up, I would guess that they need another 4 weeks or so before they are not snowy/muddy.

    I haven't ridden in the local trail here (Vernal) since December. Diving past them early last week (Tuesday) it looks like the McCoy Flats area is relatively free of snow and probably ridable if you go out early in the morning before the ground thaws. The Moo Area is probably even more free of snow but probably still muddy. Again fine if you go out before it thaws.

    It was very warm last week and had a ton of snow melt since Tuesday so that's good. The probably is that it's been warm enough that some morning, the ground is thawed out by 830am. I'm chomping at the bit. I give it about two weeks would be my guess (unless we get rain or snow).

    Awesome, it sounds like I might be able to get in some riding once I get done with my time in Wyoming.
