      Phil’s World offers nearly 60 miles of mountain bike trail located outside of Cortez, Colorado. Full of steep, short up and down pitches pitches that dip in and out of arroyos, over slickrock and ledges, with views of the Sleeping Ute, La Plata, and Mesa Verde mountains. The trails are much smoother and more buff than what you will find in central Colorado and on the Front Range. The most popular trail in the system is Rib Cage
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
