Trail Overview

This 1-mile desert single track starts in a sandy, wide-open wash, then goes into a narrower ravine with tall dirt walls with banked corners and fun wall-riding on the berms. It climbs out of the ravine and on top of a mesa. The rest of the trail has steep and loose climbs and downhills with easy small rock ledges. It's pretty curvy as it winds through the pinyon pine trees. This trail goes past a lot of unmarked intersections, so it's handy to have the map downloaded ahead of time.

Difficulty

This trail is an easy desert single-track with loose climbs, downhills, and tight turns.

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.
