Ride ideas for around Leadville

What are there for intermediate rides around Leadville? We might be there next July/August and will have dual sport bikes (DRZs). I am leaning towards Silverton and Ouray area but like the central location and the campground at Leadville. Also want to do Mosquito Pass as I have tried it twice and got turned back by snow both times. Any ride loops or info would be appreciated. Thanks

There are some nice jeep trails around camp hale. North of Leadville. My son and I stopped there last august and found some nice loop trails. Pretty easy riding in most cases.

One word.... HUH? What is Taylor? :lol:

He's referring to Taylor Park, CO. (Central CO stuff). It's a couple of hours from Leadville if you go up over Cottonwood Pass from the town of Buena Vista.

from leadville you can get to four mile by buena vista in about an hour. That's a nice place for a ds bike. The guys are advrider.com do a big ride up there just about every year.

It is the place that was described to you in your post from 3 days earlier about almost the exact same topic.

I welcome anyone who wants to have a fun week/weekend of riding to join me in Leadville/Lake County (or anywhere in Colorado) for 2010. Heres some random pics of the area.

I plan on doing Mosquito a couple of times this summer. I have a cabin at the base of Breakneck Pass (just north of Weston Pass -- which is about 5 miles south of Mosquito).

At the end of June, will be riding over Weston...down into Leadville for Mexican food and up and out over Mosquito -- dropping back into Fairplay and then south a few miles back to my cabin.

I've not done Mosquito before, but weather permiting, it sounds like it is perfectly doable on a well-equipped dual sport.

Any input on Mosquito?
