Description

From the parking lot just past the Giant gas station on Hwy 160 take the trail that ascends to the north. There are some unmarked roads/trails most of which are blocked off or have trail signs.

The trail mostly climbs, but there are some fun downhill sections. You'll end at a trail intersection with options for the Upper Twin Buttes Loop or the Cliffrock Loop.

After a short climb. You'll find winding, twisting banks and berms. A fast fun ride close to downtown Durango.
