    Any good rides around Gateway ?

    Going to be heading to Gateway Canyons Resort and was wondering if there are any good rides around that area. I know GJ/Fruita are on the way, but specifically looking for any Gateway info.

    Thanks

    There's a trail system at the resort. They have maps at the adventure outpost or whatever it is called there. There's other nearby trails off the resort I believe. I'm sure the resort staff can point you to the good rides. I picked up a map last time we were there but haven't ridden any of it.

    There's a good thread in this forum somewhere if you search.

    If you travel south on Hwy 141 for about a half hour you can access some great rides around the Biscut Rock and Uravan areas. The Paradox Trail uses the bridge at the rock to cross the Dolores River. The ride up Red Canyon is fantastic with spectacular views of the Paradox Valley to be had once you reach the top. You can make a 13 mile loop out of it by coming back down CR U 13.
    Continue along Hwy 141 for another 5 miles and you access the Y11 trail, an advanced singletrack. It starts on the south side of the old iron bridge at Uravan which crossesnthe San Miguel River. Get the BLM Nucla section map. It's a great intro map for the West End of Montrose County.
