The Phil's World trail system is directional so all loops are ridden clockwise (though not for hikers/equestrians)

The Phil's World trail system is defined by its hardpacked roller coaster-esque singletrack playfully rolling through the high desert of southern Colorado.

This route highlights the best of the high speed twisty descents within the system promising to have you grinning from ear to ear as you rip through banked turns and pump track like jumps.

For those tech hounds the route includes the Poquito Burrito trail providing large rock drops, slow tech, tight switchbacks and a massive rock slot to keep you on your toes.
