Trail Overview

This desert single-track goes along the spine of a desert mesa the whole way, with wide and narrow sections of the spine, and along the rim of the mesa with cool views of the valley below. Parts of it are a bit more off-camber, and this trail has a few trickier rock obstacles. You have to go through several rock ledges on both uphills and downhills and big slab rock faces embedded in the trail that are covered in loose dirt. A lot of the time the obstacles are really wide, spanning the width of the trail, so there are several options to choose from to pick the best line. This one is fun because it adds some technical challenges and goes through a pretty scenic landscape.

Difficulty

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 BLM 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.
