Hey, so I live in denver but willing to drive- looking for a nice trail to take my girlfriend tomorrow. Was thinking about Green Mountain but. . . any suggestions/beta on the dryness :)

Thanks

I would suggest Bear Creek State Park, but it depends on how beginner she is. This is a great place to teach a beginner rider about the basics of riding without the stress of it all. Easy singletrack that she will have enough time to get comfortable on. Then I would suggest Green Mountain lower loops.
Being a girl myself, just remember to let her have fun and go with her ability when riding. She will let you know when she is ready for more. :)

Have a great time!

If I was trying to get my significant other (assuming she's a beginner) into riding I think I'd wait until a beautiful day in June. That's just me though, good luck.

three sisters, evergreen mountain, start from upper parking lot, quite easy and nice, dont know about trail condition though
I would not suggest 3 sisters for a beginner ride. The park does have some trails that are suitable for begineers, the 3 sisters trail is not one of the those.

thanks for the input- she is actually more like beginner/intermediate-- she wanted to ride today (I was like really?!? -- ok well try to find some dry trails)-- I think we might try GM/ Bear Creek-- :)

Bear Creek - mostly flat, near zero technical.
Green Mtn. - same but option for more climbing.
South Table Mtn - single climb going up then mostly easy on top
Marshall Mesa/Comminity Ditch near Boulder - well worth the drive for a beginner. Lots of options.

Keep in mind, most of these will be messy with the temps above freezing.

We hit GM, the trails were great on the south and west side- we stayed on the lower loops- but the wind picked up and holy crap. . . actually it was me that wanted to bail-- I hate the wind-- but she enjoyed the day- the trails were not even close to being muddy, there was just a little bit of snow (some snow and ice on all northern trails)-- she had a good time so it was a success!:D
