Yes, folks, I took it upon myself to check this out for you. It was mostly sunny, 70+ degrees and there was only one other rider in sight. See what I go through in my efforts to keep you informed?
No joke, the area is rideable. Some of the more tree-lined and north-facing slopes are icy, so beware of those little gullies in the trees. If you ride into those with a good head of steam, you may find yourself hitting the deck.
These photos are from the Colorado Trail off Little Scraggy Trailhead. Speaking of which, the parking fee has gone up to $5. This may be old news to you if you’ve been there recently, but if it’s been a while, be sure to bring enough cash.
Geez, Colorado sure is ugly.
I didn’t get a chance to check out all the trails, but I bet the ones in the burn area are completely dry. Unfortunately, though, bad news is looming on the horizon: cooler weather and showers by the weekend. So unless that forecast starts to change, see if you can’t take a weekday off and get your bad self down there.
Hell yeah, that just happened.
