Cortez, CO (and Dolores, CO I guess but mainly Phil's World)

So much good biking around these places.  If you ever get a chance and are in the Durango, CO  area do yourself a favor and stop in at Phil's World just east of Cotez, CO.  I don't think I have ever ridden a ride with a bigger grin....the link has all the directions you need.  This is easily one of the top 5 rides I have ever done.  It isn't a hard ride at all, but it just flows so well.  Stay left and your all good.  Great map at the trailhead.....seriously this is a killer it before you die!

I would suggest camping just north of Cortez a few miles in Dolores, CO at another great trailhead for Boggy Draw.  Click the links for directions, it is higher in elevation and in the tress so its much cooler.  Great camping right at the Boggy trailhead.  Ride Phil's World first though...amazing......Boggy is good, but Phil's World is sooooo good.

I didn't take many pictures as I was having way too much fun to stop. If you need any more beta stop in at Kokopelli Bike & Board in downtown Cortez, CO. They have great maps of all the areas above and have a great selection of all sorts of stuff.  Great mechanics and tons of free info if you ask the guys in back.

Next stop Telluride, CO and some cooler temps and high altitude riding.
