Trail Overview

This is one of the longer trails in the trail system at 2.5 miles. This single track has a rocky start down in the valley below the mesas, with a big loose hill climb up to the top of the mesa full of embedded slab rocks and roots. It rides along the tops of the mesas as a twisty and curvy trail through the pinyon pine trees. There is another big climb with big wide faces of embedded boulders spanning the trail, but you can skirt around the edge of the boulders on an easier path. The trail goes past two unmarked intersections with BLM 8625, which can be taken as an alternate route back to Highway 131. It goes on the ridgelines of the mesa and down some loose descents. There is a small staging area that is a dirt pull-off of Highway 131 at the bottom of this trail.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate single track with rock obstacles and loose downhills.

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.
