Been outta the loop with mtbr in a while, but Durango is an amazing place for honestly anything you want, thus coming to college here for me. Purg has got some ok trails for the actual purg resort, but if you find a group you can shuttle along the side and there are some trails hidden, along the colorado trail is log chutes (mentioned above) which is super fun. the Colorado Trail itself is an amazing place for XC same with the animas trail. if you go up by the college behind is the gulch great network of trails it connects to the 2009 single speed worlds course.
