    Will be in Glenwood in a couple weeks. Would like to find a ghost town or other cool wheeling trail while in the area. Can anyone help me out?

    pick up charles wells book...he does trails all over colorado. there's two volumes. he doesn't do any right in glenwood (only one i know of is deadman creek), but he does marble/crestedbutte which is right there. that area gets italian creek, pearl passs, schofield pass (a bit notorious if you check it out ;) ), taylor pass, ohio pass, kebbler pass, lead king basin, plus a few more that i can't think of right now.

    also, if you go to marble, you will find the most photographed mill in colorado history. don't remeber where i read that, but it's a cool mill.

    There are some decent trails, not very long though...Rising Sun maintains one that goes up to a public cave. There a good one called Crystal Mill outside of Carbondale is supposedly one of the most photographed areas in the U.S. Too bad my cruiser is over @ Jeremiahs. But I may have a new one here if you need/want a tour guide, when you coming down? Let m eknow Ray
