    I went out to a place called Three Sisters/Alderfer this weekend for a cross-country ride. It's a trail located just outside of Evergreen (25 minutes west of Denver). This place is PERFECT for trials.. It's unbelievable.. thousands of boulders scattered all over the woods.. Some are huge others are tiny.. there is riding for all levels and an infinite amount of lines.

    Kevin, have you seen this place? I might try and head out there after work on Wednesday or Thursday and take some pics. Elan, this place should be pretty close for you.

    indeed- that place is really nice for xc riding. i had thought about the rocks up there for a trials comp. i dont know what kind of land the stuff is on though. is the rock stuff on open space or private? depending on what kind of land it's on would determine if we can use it for comps or if it's just a group ride spot.

    Good question. I'm pretty sure it's open space since I saw a couple of park rangers out there trying to give me a ticket for riding with my dog. It would probably just be good for group rides..

    It's Jeffco open space. It's also a really popular spot for hiking/biking/bouldering/etc. So, I imagine just like any other form of biking, just as long as you don't piss off anyone you should be good.

    There are two parking lots. The first has boulder potential, the second (on up the road, behind a barn) has another area that has a large outcropping with boulders all around.

    The far North east side (a trail will take you there) has a large area where dirt and rocks meet... Perhaps another great area.

    The only guff you may get is the fact that Jefferson County Open Space may not know what a trials bicycle is... and therefore tell you that you should be on the trail... Fuckin tricky.
