Overend Mountain Park is named after Durangoís favorite son and local
bicycle folk hero, Ned Overend. Itís conveniently located right at the edge
of Durango, so you can easily get out for a quick and fun single-track
experience when youíre in Durango.
The network is well marked with signs at major junctions, so just remember
the names of the trails you want to hit. There are trails that exit the park
and go ďoff the mapĒ out onto BLM land if you are looking for a longer
There are multiple loop options you can explore after you are familiar. To
get you familiar, hereís a fun five-mile route. From either of the suggested
trailheads, turn right (north) onto Crestview Tr. Turn left onto Hidden Valley
Trail. Turn right on Grabens Loop (staying left at the unmarked junction).
At the next sign, turn right for a fun, banked descent down Star Wars. Turn
right on Perins Gulch for a nice climb up to Hogsback. Follow the ridge until
you are faced with an OMG-Durango-gnarly climb. Go up and over the top if
you are an over-the-top gonzo rider. Saner folks can shake their heads in
disbelief and turn around here and retrace your route back to Perins Gulch.
Stay on Perins Gulch until you can turn left and climb the lower half of Nedís
Hill. If you are out for a shorter ride, turn right on Englehartís Trail and
another right onto Crestview to return to your car. If you want to extend
your fun, donít turn onto Englehartís Tr. But continue up Nedís Hill Trail.
Turn left on Grabens Loop. You can choose to do Star Wars again if you
liked that. Otherwise, complete Grabens Loop and take Hidden Valley back
around to Crestview Trail and your car.
