This is a series of short trails and loops collectively named the Ridgway Area Trails (RAT). The loops consist of both singletrack and dirt road, and there are constantly new trails being added. Riding the whole network is currently about 10 miles and 800 vertical feet. This is a very fun ride. You can either drive to the trailhead which is just about 1/4 mile up the Owl Creek Pass Road, or you can pedal right out of Ridgeway along the river trail. There are many short loops that are fun to explore. There are constantly new trails being added.
