A sample ride of some of the most scenic, buff, and super fun singletrack you'll ever ride.

Overview

The Ridgway Trails are a work in progress. Overall, this is a great singletrack park where you can loop around and create an adventure of a few miles (2-3) or many (7+). Future trails will expand capabilities to 20+ miles.

Need To Know

Visit Cascade Bicycles (no affiliation) in Ridgway for a copy of the latest map of the trails.

Description

The RAT system is currently a work in progress, continually evolving with ongoing construction of new trails.

In the spring of 2013, after eight years of administrative review by BLM and constant advocacy from COPMOBA/RAT, BLM issued its final Environmental Analysis and Travel Management Plan for the RAT trail network. Construction began almost immediately and, to date, volunteers and paid professionals have constructed about seven miles of rockin' new singletrack.

Forecasting the weather...

Great trail system with lots of potential with the ongoing expansion (I think it was around 12 miles of singletrack when I rode this weekend). Rode with a local rider/trail builder and if all of the possible trails he was pointing out to us are realized then this could be one of the new MTB destinations in Colorado. Very exciting things going on down there. Jun 29, 2015

This is a very fun trail....some great roller coaster downhill...some technical...but mostly just good old fun riding...some sections we had to do over and over...nice! You can also carpool to the top and drop riders off for just downhill fun! May 27, 2016
