Re: Taylor Park Trail Report
In a normal season there would be endless trails to ride, however this year is different due to the effects of winter snow. With that being said there are still lots of trails to ride but some will just be an in and out trip rather than a loop. Cross Mountain, Slaughterhouse Gulch, Lilly Pond, Pie Plant Mine site are a few of the popular trails that you can do now. Lots of easy side trails between Tin Cup and Taylor Park too. Taylor Pass to Taylor Lakes is rough as usual but a neat ride. Can't go into Pitkin County via Taylor Pass (2018 Pitkin County ATV rules) even if it wasn't snowed shut.
Flag Mt/Italian Mt normally is open by now, but due to current snow you can only go as far as Oliver's Cabin near Star Mine. Not sure about Reno Ridge but Cement Creek was closed at Warm Spring Ranch last word I had.
Tellurium Creek trail is open but not the back side. Tin Cup Pass, Hancock, are still snowed in. Mirror Lake is full and the road along the side is under several feet of water. Last word I had Cumberland Pass was open to the top from the Pitkin side. Lots of other trails that I haven't mentioned that may be open by the time you get there. Conditions change daily, should be plenty to ride by August.
