This downhill ride begins with a ski lift ride to the top. Mostly downhill coasting with a couple of easy uphill pedaling sections. Beautiful scenery and lots of greenery.

The employees at Purgatory/ Durango Mountain Resort Let us know that we had every right, as hikers, to be on those trails. They said best to hike beneath the chairlifts. We took to the more easterly side. Bikers were courteous and I was fast to side step off the trail as soon as I saw one in the distance. We had the keep our 6 year old aware of the fast and furious dangers posed by them.

Be aware lift closes 4pm and plan accordingly.

Nice and steep for a short workout. Definitely will get acquainted with bike-free trails around here for a safer and less ‘high-alert’ experience.

Took the lifts to the top, and rode the trails down. Some sections are very technical. Excellent mt. biking trail if you like to go fast and furious.
