       Most people end up in Durango to ride, but Mancos has riding worth the trip. A true southwest gem.

       Incredible trail. Prone to having downed trees it appears (which is the case now). Last couple miles or so are not great. Very rocky. I’m sure better riders would have a much easier time than me exiting but if you’re kinda average it’s gonna suck.
