Trail Overview

Dirt bike trail BLM 8625 is a 2-mile trail that starts and ends on BLM 8624, with a section that parallels Highway 131 in the middle of the loop. Parts of the trail are fast and flowy through the grassy hillsides of the desert mesas, but there are also a couple of challenging sections to get through a couple of rock problems. These are big rounded boulders spanning the trail's width or choppy rock ledges at the tops of several hill climbs. They are moderate obstacles with multiple lines to choose from and very typical for the trail system. The trail is made up of loose dirt and has a couple of loose hill climbs and descents. It drops 300 feet from the top of the mesa, parallels the highway, and climbs 200 feet back up to the tops of the mesa.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate single-track with moderate rock obstacles and loose dirt.

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.
