It’s been way too long since I got out on some trails! I’d like to drive the Rainbow Falls area on Saturday November 20th. I tried calling the ranger to check on trail conditions, but their office is closed for the pandemic and their mailbox is full 😠.
So two things: does anyone have information on trail conditions in the Rainbow Falls area?
Assuming the trails are open and passable, who is coming to drive the trails with me? I’m thinking we can meet at Exxon - 18561 US-40, Golden, CO 80401 at 6:30 am, and convoy down to the trail. I’m open to other suggestions though. I’ll give out my phone number once we know who is going to help coordinate everything.

I was down in the Phantom Creek/Signal Butte area last weekend and it was dry as a bone. That area is southwest and considerably higher than Rainbow Falls, so I would think you should have no problem. :)

I can't get out this weekend, or I would go with you.

Thanks for the information. I assumed the trail is ok because we’ve had so little precipitation this year. I think this trip is a GO!

Saw the Cruiserclub is running China wall. Id like to run something more on our side of town being north. But haven’t ran China wall in awhile. Rainbow is fun just been a lot and was wanting some new. I’m in Littleton. Not sure what trails this way are still good as far as ice goes. How hard of trails are looking at running. Ever ran Rollins pass or trails in between i70 and nederland?
