Fall riding out here is great, I hope you guys are enjoying the last days of the season as well. And if you feel early season anxiousness, well come out to the western slope of CO, GJ/Fruita. It's always dry early:) Hopefully I see you all on the trail come early summer. Can't stay away from my home town trails (especially the NCT.) Cheers Mitten riders:)

There is a pretty large tree down on the red loop. It's on toward the end on the last big turn as you go down hill to reconnect to the blue loop.

Thank


It should be fine. There hasn't been much thaw in the last week or so. Unless temps get into upper 30's + sunny you should be okay but I'll let those who are more familiar with the trail to chime in.

Luton Park will open Thursday 4/17! Thanks to the volunteers from the Merrell trail night for making the trip over here to remove all the storm damage. The trails are dry and in great shape! Thanks for everyone's patience this season. Heads up, a temporary reroute on the Green Loop near 10 Mile due to the parking lot construction.

I am all for sharing the trail but I feel that dogs not on leashes and people looking down at their cell phones is a bit dangerous compared to bikers carrying speed (especially around blind corners). Is there any way we can get some signage up to help keep the trail safe for everyone.


We can but it will be more effective to help spread the word that mountain bikers need to slow down and be more cautious while on the green loop. The the new starting point means this loop will always be more crowded than it was before. The blue loop did an excellent job of thinning out the users quicker.


Is the blue loop now bi-directional? I have seen multiple people riding blue backwards as well. Most of the time it is wide enough to handle it but a few blind corners and tight areas make it more difficult.

What are the cross roads/nearby streets off of 10 Mile that are near the new entrance?

The weather looks interesting this weekend. It looks like it may barely get to freezing temps tonight. Does anyone have a sense as to whether or on the trail will okay early tomorrow (before 10) or not?
