    Durango

    Hi, heading there this weekend on a hastily planned trip from east coast.

    Any tips on getting info on the trails, planning rides, etc? I am open to paying for a tour/led ride one day if anyone does that.

    If I stay downtown, can I ride from there or should I plan on renting a car large enough to fit my bike into?

    Or conversely, if the good riding is a bit too far from downtown,is there a recommended place to stay?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey sandman012,

    You can ride to all the trails that are currently open if you stay Downtown.

    The "town trails" are dry. About 1mi from Downtown to the Horse Gulch Trailhead.

    Enjoy!!!

    You have good stuff near downtown, you can climb up to the rim trail that goes along Ft. Lewis college and then into the Telegraph/Horse Gulch trail system. The visitors center down at the park by the river has trail maps. Have fun.
