Default CO newbie, any northside trail recommendations?

Hey all,
It looks like I have unpacked the house enough that I will get some time to explore this weekend. Any recommendations for good close in trails? Alternatively are there any good sites/resources for finding trails?

Cheers,
Matt

Your options are pretty limited this time of year, especially in Boulder County. With the floods last fall and the winter snow, most trails are closed until May/June. Heading further south opens a few options for trails open all winter. I believe China Wall stays open, and the Gulches can be driven, and maybe Slaughterhouse. Yankee Hill is close by near Central City/Blackhawk, but this is a full on snow run as you climb higher and higher.

China Wall, all 3 Gulches, plus Illinois Gulch and that area all remain open. It takes about 3-4 hours to reach the bottom of Hackett from South Denver, so it's a full day from the North Side. China Wall is even further, but they're both fun. We'll be doing a Hackett Mud Run very soon.
