I was out on the trail earlier this month and I noticed some owl watchers between New Planet and Bootstrap. Trail, of course, was in great shape -- only a few minor mud puddles remain from the soaking spring
We walked from North Boulder to Avery for lunch yesteray. The earliest trees aren't quite fully leafed yet -- they're still just wisps of impressionist green. Other trees are still winter bare. Most of the irrigation ditches are flowing with water. Trail, of course, is in fine shape, at least to Twin Lakes and Avery.
Trail is in great condition from Boulder to Bootstrap. One thing to note: it is owl nesting season in the Twin Lakes area, so be quiet while walking/running/riding through. Or maybe stop and see if you can spot the hiding birds.
I was out yesterday. I wasn't on any of the cinder paths, but the trails in town have all melted. No ice, no snow, just clear sailing.
We walked from Longmont to the Cottonwood trail on a sunny Sunday. Conditions were good all along the trail. There were maybe ten short patches of ice or pooling water. Funny, it seems like the pools formed on cinder path sections, as though the ground wasn't absorbing the water so it just sat there. But really, the trail was very passable.
Cheers to these breweries who sponsor the Boulder Ale Trail.
