How's Woodland Park looking?

Wondering what the trail conditions are there right now. Snowed in still?

last i heard there is still snow and ice in the shade... but its clearing out fast!.... i don't live there nor have i been up there.. just what i have heard!

There's still plenty of snow up here. It's actually snowing right now. Let's all hope for some consecutive days of warm weather here soon, eh!

Keep us posted, Jen..

Looking forward to dryer (and warmer) riding.

Rode Rainbow falls on 3/26. Was good. Still snow and ice in the shade, but all and all good riding for an ATV forsure. Should be real nice by next weekend.

I just spoke with Rick Ellsworth who is the road maintenance manager for the 717 area and he said there have been a lot of ATVs out there but his opinion is that it would be tough going on a bike. He thought late April is looking good for it to be melted and dry enough not to damage the trails.

Nice! Thanks for the update on 717. Id like to ride that this year. I think I will head down there mid April.

how do you get to 717

      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!

      Weather should be awesome, thinking of taking the day off to go ride rampart or something else close Friday. I'm not one to go riding by myself so if anyone is thinking about it let me know! My usual riding buddy has plans.

      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.
