Trail Overview

This is a short and easy desert single track in the McCoy Trail System that goes up and over the rolling desert mesas, on loose dirt, with loose small rock and embedded slab rock. It has a couple of steeper hill climbs, one of which has a slab rock obstacle at the top of the climb that is an easy challenge. The trail goes through grassy meadows on tops of the mesas with lots of whoops and has great views of the surrounding valley above the Colorado River. Access this trail from Colorado River Road 301 by taking a sandy dirt road (BLM 8601) north past a couple of camp spots. It ends at an intersection with a couple more spur trails.

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.
