Mountain Biking Big Canyon

****   Add a review
#402 of 1,353 mountain bike trails in Colorado

A tight, curvey trail leads to the granview network. I like to ride this down and out to the rail head as an ending point for a loop starting in Horse Gulch, up and over Telegraph.

Getting there
Dirve out Hwy 160 east, turn left at Wall mart and left again at the stop sign. A parking area is on the left. Trail is across the street. I prefer to start in town and end on big canyon then take hwy 3 or the Animas River Trail back to town. You can start from here and access the grandview area.

    Fun twisty narrow trail, short sight distances at times due to the foliage growth. Rode this early July. Loose and dry.

    This is a great way to exit the Grandview trail system. I like going up Sale Barn and out Sidewinder and back around, but the options are many. Be sure to hit the wall ride!!!
