Trail Overview

The Pork Chop trail is a short trail in the Dry Creek Recreation Area that has sections of fast desert single track through sagebrush and pinyon pine in between more difficult sections of loose rock climbs and descents. It flows up and over the rolling hills of the surrounding mesas with loose rocks and moderate rock ledges. The trail crosses rocky dry creek beds in between the mesas and has a few rock pinches and moderate stair steps. The trail has lots of tight twisties turns through the trees, and is very similar to the Toldja trail, but less steep. The scenery in this area is really unique, with cool red dirt bluffs, and great views of the canyons between the mesas. It's one of the less popular trails as it is farther from the staging area, but this is still a popular riding area on nice spring and fall weekends. It dumps out on the Cowpoke Gulch Road in a flat grassy meadow.


Moderate rock ledges, steep grades, rock pinches and tight twisty curves make this an intermediate trail.
