5 Mile pass on Sunday
Has anybody done the Holy Cross Trail on a dirtbike? This is just outside of Minturn, north of Leadville and south of Vail. I've run this several times in my Jeep (probably my favorite trail) all the way past Holy Cross City to Cleveland Rock, but wondering how it would be on a bike. I'm guessing it would be easier.
I'll likely plan to find out this summer, but would appreciate any input.

Three of us decided to get the heck out of the Midwest weather as we are suffering a bad case of the wife is driving us crazy right along with the cabin fever. A couple of us have been to MOAB once before but we're only three and we like a bit larger group when the riders are fairly well matched. However, and this may show what I DON'Y know about MOAB, the one day of riding I was able to do out there last year before having to head home for a family burial, it seems to me that the skill level required for most of MOAB is fairly dialed down compared to Taylor Park so matching up skill level as a group seems less an issue. Now don't skin me alive if I am wrong, I already said I don't really know the area yet. So anyway, if anyone is interested in joining us on the trail, we'd like to know about it!
Spring is almost here and I was wondering if anyone has been by pipestone... How is the snow looking?? MTDOT pass web cam is down so I could not get a visual on the snowpack. is the lower area still a bit wet or is it starting to dry up a bit. Looks like we have some really good weather this week. I think I am going to head there this saturday to check it out but if anyone has any updates post them here.
Also, last year was my first year there and we only hit it in the late fall. We really liked the area and were able to go 4 or 5 times. If you are a regular shout out and lets go riding.... I plan on spending a lot of time there this year.
