(Bambi’s, Back-In, Sawtooth, Outback, Skull Pass and Aberdeen) remain closed to bikes and motos until May 15. The upper Signal Peak trails (Contour, Duane’s World, South Rim, Music Rocks, Northwoods and Sunny D) are open to bikes as of today, May 1, with no riding before 10am until May 15 to protect Gunnison Sage grouse. Northwoods is still holding quite a bit of snow, so best to avoid. The trails in the northwest portion of Signal (Ridgeline, Chicken Wing, Rasta and Shoelace) remain closed to all uses until May 15. Happy opening day!
