Trail Overview

This 1-mile desert trail mostly goes through a sandy wash that is a mix of red dirt and sand with loose rock mixed in. There are a couple of easier rock slab obstacles throughout the wash, but they are more ramped, so they are easier. It goes up and out of the wash a couple of times on steep hills that go immediately back down into the wash. This is one of the easier trails in the area because it doesn't have as many big rock obstacles. There are a couple of narrower spots in the wash like rock pinch points, and loose small logs and sticks scattered throughout the wash. There are more trees and bushes in the wash than on the mesas, so this trail gets a little bit more shade than the rest of the trails in the area that ride on the tops of the mesas.

Difficulty

This is an easy desert single track through a wash with an embedded rock slab.

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.
