Need to Know

At mile 8.8, take a right, head up Bean Canyon Trail. Take another right on Boggy Draw Trail. Once at the Boggy Draw Trailhead, take the road back into Dolores. Distance: 17.44 miles, vertical: 1,955 feet, running time about 2.5 hours. This will make for a sweet loop.

Description

This trail starts at the cemetery at the west end of Dolores with lots of room to park. Unfortunately, the beginning 300 yds are very steep due to limited space given to get up onto the mesa. Please don't let this discourage you, once you get on top it's a beautiful, rideable trail with fantastic overlooks of the McPhee Reservoir.

This is an enjoyable singletrack through pinon and juniper, with drops and climbs of three ravines. It is easiest if riding from Dolores to Little Bean Canyon Trail #198 then take County Road 31 (pavement) back down to Dolores.
