Does anyone know when the parking lot opens at Blue? I usually do early morning riding starting 6-7am and wondering if the gates will be open or if there is alternative parking.


Not 100% sure but I dont think they ever close the gates at Blue anymore. I never get there early enough to know but back in the day we used to go 7:30 all the time, never a prob...ENJOY.

Are you allowed to park where the road is closed on Montrose Station Road? i.e. where this guy started:

I've been having some map problems lately as I try to find new routes at Blue. I tried to ride up Yin/Yang staying left at the end to Yin until hitting Limbo where we made a right turn. From there we wanted to ride either lower SIS or Stinger down to the lake. I was watching for Crossover knowing that SIS and Stinger would be the next trails after that. Somehow we wound up out at the utility line so we doubled back and took the first trail on the left figuring it was Stinger. We then came to a T and took a right and realized we were on Rocky Glen with the lake down below us. I don't know how the heck we wound up on Rocky Glen. I'm guessing we must have been on Middle Stinger somehow before hitting Rocky Glen. Sorry to ramble on, but does anyone have an idea where I went wrong here?

If you ended up at the utility line you missed the lower (upper on the map??) SIS and the stinger turns(but you already know that). The SIS trail head is a hard left at a right bend in trail directly across from crossover (on the right easily missed if you are not looking for it ). When you doubled back, the first left you came down was middle stinger to Rocky Glenn where you made a right down to the pond (if you looked left a little ways down the fire road little stinger takes you to the other end of the pond). The upper stinger is directly across the fire road from the left you made down middle stinger. It goes up the hill and around the rocks.

CounterClockwise- Lower Monster and up - 2x more tech climbing, clockwise - from the top (gas line or whatever) fun lines and more flow, can be very fast!!!

Here's a route I just did with a friend who had never been here before-does all the best stuff, but not a beginner loop by any means.

Lot #1, Access rd toward gate, On your back, 45, 46, Jekyll,(maybe El Capitain)35,32, Ned's, 31, Upper SIS, Stinger,26,25, MFT, 19, 18, Middle Stinger, 26, 29, Monster, 35, 36, 34, 43, 44, 33, Criss Cross, 2 Crew Live, 48, 42, 41, 1, Back at lot

Total of about 15 or so miles, tons of climbing but still fun.It has all the "flowy" goodness that Blue has to offer

Which trails in which direction are fast and flowy at Blue?

I can see them in my memory, but I keep missing some of them or going the wrong direction when I ride.

Out the back of the parking lot (2)
Switchback (3, 14, 15, 17, 16, 13)
Go by the water to (12) and turn right onto Rocky Glen (18, 19)
At 20 turn left towards 21
Go up Sitting Duck (26, 27, 29, 30)
Head to 31 and Ned's Left Lung (not bad going downhill)
At 32 turn left onto Boundary Trail (35)
At 36 turn off the Boundary trail and continue through (34, 43, 44, 33)
Head on Crossover to 11
Turn right going back to the parking lot (10, 6, 5, 4, 1)

Thinking about hitting up Blue mtn sometime once the trails dry up after the storm. I am planning a route and wanted to ask if it is good for a beginner/intermediate rider.

1, 41, 42, 48, Yang, 44 to 33, Upper Sis, Sis, Criss-cross, 10, 6, 5, 7, 13, Switchback all the way back to lot

stinger is excellent as is Dr Jeckyll. Ride that instead of Switchback.

Can you guys offer up suggestions on the trails that have the most jumps or the most flowy sections? I have only ridden there twice and haven't explored all the trails yet. Thanks.
