It's not good. The red gate trails got some snow and there is still about an inch left in a lot of places. The trails looked ok but are still wet. I only made it a short while on the Duke trail. Just wet muck that gums up everything and then you can't even pedal:madman: Don't know if it will be ready by this weekend?

Still not good today (Friday). Took these pix around 10 AM.

Red Gate:


Top of Rock Canyon:


I was shocked at how much snow was out there - only a dusting in town. I'd suggest avoiding this area this weekend unless things *really* dry out tomorrow.

The good thing about Pueblo is that it avoids alot of snow that other places get:thumbsup:
The bad thing is when it does get snow it takes forever for it to get good again:madman: The soil is clayish type stuff that clings to your tires and cakes up everything. I'm serious, after a little spin on Duke I threw in the towel and then it took me 30 minutes to get most of it off with water pump by the bathroom.

I went out for a spin early this morning while everything was still frozen and snapped this pic at the bottom of Skull Canyon.

It snowed Friday night about a 1/2 inch, just gonna turn to muck when the temps get above freezing. Gotta get out there in the early AM; while its still frozen.
I agree with DJ - *IF* you get out early enough you can ride it while it's still frozen. The problem is, it can change from frozen to muddy in no time flat.

Thanks to all those who have read this thread and stayed off the trails during these past few unusually wet and muddy weeks. Unfortunately, there's always a few who have to ride just about every trail out there and leave behind ruts galore before they decide it's "still no good today". :rolleyes:

Amen Wilbury1!!! It's way too muddy to drive down from up north to ride the trails any time after 10:00 am. Once it does dry out some, it will be tacky goodness. Patience kids.... Oh yeah and what Wilbury1 said, thanks to all those who stay off when it is this muddy:thumbsup: It sure cuts down on trail maintenance!

I think we are looking at mid March for any sign of dry trails at the lake. I think It was December 2nd, the last time I got in a good mtb ride there, which is pretty late anyway. Time to revert to "winter sports" like road riding. Winter always holds off pretty late in Pueblo, but when it hits the dirt trails are done.

Thanks for the update folks. There's definitely more snow out there than I expected.

BTW, MERRY CHRISTMAS! Four of us lucky guys got a pass to ride today at Ute. Had to do it before the weather comes in again.

Please keep us posted. Maybe the bike gods will show us good favor and dry trails by Sunday.
