Wilderness Trails- Check Out Our New Mountain Biking Page

Come ride with us! Only this time we're talking knobby tired fun- Mountain Bikes (don't worry the horses aren't going anywhere!

Wilderness Trails Ranch is excited to invite you to check out our newest website addition, our Mountain Biking page. After our successful debut in 2011, we've decided to take this new program feature from beta to full offering.

Mountain Biking (MTB) may not have been born in Southwest Colorado, but our mountains and trails are certainly where it came of age.

Durango is host to countless cycling enthusiasts every spring, summer and fall and for many is considered amongst the very greatest areas to ride.  The region has been host to numerous cycling events, including the first ever UCI World Mountain Bike Championships which were held in Durango and hosted at nearby Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort.  The annual Iron Horse Bicycle Classic pits rider against steam train every spring, as cyclists make the famous 48 mile trip from Durango to Silverton trying to beat the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Train in this epic test of sustained climbing and descending over some of the most scenic and rugged geography on the planet.

The trail network around our part of Colorado provides a range of riding second to none. At the lowest elevations the trails are desert like while the highest elevations will make you wonder if you might be able to touch the sky.

Check out the video below- it was right before the first snows came and buried the high elevation singletrack. The video was shot with duct tape, zip-ties and rubber bands... no fancy POV camera here! Amazing what you can do with an iPhone, a point and shoot video cam and a computer. The video quality terrible. The scenery amazing. The riding sublime. Enjoy the ride.
