"Lake Pueblo State Park is this region's gem, with almost 40 miles of singletrack that swirl around mesa tops and descend into steep arroyos; Hubersberger considers the riding here a Fruita of the Front Range, and the largely butter-smooth, twisty singletrack is good enough to back up that bold comparison. Hardtails and XC bikes are perfect for most of the trails, but on routes like Bones and Steep Tech, you'll encounter shaley rock gardens and sizeable airs. Pueblo is also a good bet in winter because it gets less snow than a lot of the state; conversely, The city's thick clay soil is unrideable peanut butter when wet." -- Bicycling Magazine
