TR: CO Trail (Gold Hill) to Blair Witch
ColMan was nice enough to show me around the Breck trails this afternoon and I have to say... my first impression of the place is that it kicks much ass. Those of you that warned me were right- some of the best singletrack that I've ridden. It started off with a 2-3 mile dirt road slight climb, and then once we were on the CO Trail, it shot straight up... about 2k vert in a few miles. However, it was worth the punishment. The next 7-8 (?) miles were some of the best riding I've done. Smooth and flowy- I had trouble keeping up with Colin for most of the ride; I must say that he hauls ass on the downhills for sure. I'll be back up there this summer for sure.... but for now, here's some pics we took today:
Colin beginning the descent:
The trail is SO smooth:
Relatively steep in some spots:
Welcome to the goodness:
It never ended:
Even the photog got a few slutting ops- me on the downhill:
I think we both had a smile on our faces the whole day:
And the trail goes on....
Can you find Colin on Blair Witch:
The views didn't suck either:
This section was a lot like Buff Creek:
One more... hauling ass was the theme of the day:

Nice dudes! Breck is basically where I learned to mtb...good stuff. I lived on Boreas Pass and would do the loop up the pass to Baker's tank all the time. I don't think I knew quite how good the trails really were at the time since I was such a n00b. All I knew was that it was fun and I came home bloody from almost every ride...I'm so hardcore, I'm gnarcore.

nice ride, steve.
definitely a variation of what we ride up there, but great loop, nonetheless.

That's my old backyard. I used to ride that stuff every day almost. Great way to escape the frontrange heat wave. Blair witch used to be a secret. Not so much anymore but still a great trail. If you stay on the CT it just keeps getting better. I miss being able to ride out of my back door. Now I have to drive like an hour to anything worthwhile. On the bright side, Centennial cone was sweet yesterday.

Fun day. Always a great ride on that section. Next time we'll have to ride it from Georgia Pass (should be dry soon) instead of the North Fork. Starting from Kenosha is fun as well.
My favorite loop is French Gulch->Little French Gulch->American Gulch Flume->GP->CO Trail->Upper flume to middle to lower back into town.

Nice report and pictures, looks like things have really melted out the past couple weeks. How high in elevation did you guys ride?

I'm guessing we topped out between 11,500 and 12,000... no signs of snow anywhere near the trail.
