Last year, I suffered and enjoyed the MTB 100 (ok, 1 lap, I'm human). From riding the loop, I would love to catch that stellar mountain pass in early August. Will have the wife along to provide a drop off ...

1. What is the driving route through those dirt roads to where she could drop me off?
2. What trails are suggested to max the single track and end up at the Durango Moutain Lodge?
3. Will be camping with this trail/route in mind. Is there dispersed camping allowed?

Any intel appreciated.
