      About 60 miles of single track. Can park at several locations. In town of Ridgway there is a paved bike/walking path along the river the can get you to the trails. Is a fairly new system with several miles of new trail that were built in the last couple of year. More trails have been approved by the BLM. Main trails are located off of County Road 10. Has interlocking loops with the shorter closer loops being easier and they get more difficult as you go farther out. Lost of steep climbs, tech rocky stuff, fun gravity type trails. Pretty much something for everyone. While here, check out the trails at Dennis Weaver Park on the West side of Hwy 550. Short fun loops next to the Uncomphagre River. Real fun system and fantastic views. All right next to Ridgway State Park which has lots of camping options.
      After a hard day of riding, might as well check out the Trail Town Distillery, Colorado Boy Brewery, and the Orvis Hot Springs which are all in Ridgway.
