Trail Overview

8600E is a unique trail for the area because it goes along the bottom of a small creek bed with several creek crossings, in a more wooded section under leafy trees, rather than up high on the rocky desert mesas. Half of the trail you are in the wash, and the other half you are elevated above the wash. You go through a grassy section with more trees and shade and then go into a ravine that has more berms and banked corners. There's a log down in the ravine that is cut. Other than in spring and early summer, there may not be much or any water in the creek.

Difficulty

This is an easy desert single track through a ravine and creek bed with no obstacles.

Access Description

The McCoy Trail System is on BLM land west of the small town of McCoy, Colorado. This trail system hardly has any trail signs and has lots of unmarked intersections. There is no service in the area, so it's best to download the maps ahead of time. The system is made up of lots of short trails varying in difficulty from easy to advanced, with lots of rock obstacles and great views of the Colorado River. There is a staging area that is a dirt pull-off on Highway 131 near Trail 8625 that accesses trails on the west and east sides of this highway. There are also some small staging areas and BLM camp spots for small rigs on the Colorado River Road 301 to access the trails from the south. There's some private property in the area that should be respected. This area gets really hot in the summer, so the best times to ride are spring and fall.
