    I am going to be down in the Estes Park area for a few days in September and want to know if there are any good mtn. biking trails near there that would be worthwhile to ride at while I'm there.

    There are not too many in/around Estes. Here is a list of the few I know:

    Crosier Mtn. in between Drake and Glen Haven (Singletrack)
    Hall Ranch just south of Lyons (Singletrack)
    Pole Hill, House Rock, Johnny Park -Estes Park-(Jeep Roads)
    There are a couple great rides in Poudre canyon (Hewlett and Young Gulch)
    You can also ride UP Fall River Road and then back down Trail Ridge (you cannot ride down Fall River Rd - one way)

    Sorry for the generalized info. Let me know if you need more specifics.
