Flatirons Vista South Trail

Trail Meter: 
Poor

Flatirons Vista South is one of those trails that on the surface isn’t much of a bike trail, but has some hidden gems for those who look off the trail. The trail starts out with a moderate climb up into the evergreens. After you get into the trees the trail comes together with the Prairie Vista Trail. Stay left to continue your journey around Flatirons Vista South. Once you go through the gate, the trail really picks up character. The trail winds through the evergreens and flows downhill all the way to Doudy Draw. This is the area where you need to keep your head up - deer can be seen here most of the year, and in the summer, you will see thousands of dandelions! This trail, as with all of the trails in the Marshall Mesa area, can be very busy with different user groups. Please be very courteous to all of them!

I tried this trail on Sat., Jan. 18, and was pretty disappointed. There is still a lot of snow and mud. I would up turning around after about 10 min. Stay away for now; the trail is not ready yet.

Mostly dry and clear, if a bit windy today.

12/28 pre storm
All good

a couple of frozen spots, a couple of soft spots... it's all good...

Snow? Where we're going we don't need snow! Trail all good! Tacky in some spots.

As of 12/23 all good, dry and ready for riding.

Rode most of this trail but cut over using Prairie Vista. The part I rode was all dry and all good. Moisture made the trail nice and tacky. Might be a couple of small muddy spots that are completely rideable and will most likely be dried up by the time you read this. Happy Thanksgiving!

11/23... the 24th will be muddy...it will dry out quickly, so if you really need to ride, do it before it gets above freezing.

The dam at the bottom of the trail is nothing but sticky mud! miserable!
