Mountain Biking Purgatory Bike Park

***   Add a review
#1,144 of 1,359 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#11,582 in the world

Various trails for most skill levels. Lift service is offered for $25 per day or you can
ride up and back down. Many "trails" are actually service roads but there is some
great singletrack as well. Beautiful scenery.

    As of 2017:
    Not a bike park. A couple of half assed singletrack trails. The top part of the flow trail is fun, but ends before the bottom and connects with old roads. You have to take a slow, old, uncomfortable 2 seat chairlift that takes literally 20 minutes to get to the top. $40 for that? Shame on you purg. Just shuttle the USFS service road if you want to ride there.

    As a "Bike Park" destination, DMR has little to offer as its not really a bike park. There are some some XC trails with climbs and keen views, but there is little infrastructure offered by the property.

    The terrain and views are both beautiful, but route finding can be confusing even with the maps they supply. There is a lift running in the summer, but no real "Downhill" style trails if that is what you are looking for. The trail named "Diggler" does go downhill, but much more XC orientated. To give an idea, the resort rents "off road scooters" to ride down the Diggler trail.

    For a family stop, DMR offers a quaint mountain village atmosphere with nice restaurants, urban-esque zipline that flies over part of the village and bouncy-bungee feature, but there is little serious singletrack supported by the resort. If you're looking for some serious, breathtaking singletrack experience, best to contact a local shutle company and get to the realy high country trails like BlackHawk Pass, Molass and Engineer trails.

    *hint- if you happen to have a dh bike an don't mind a little adventure, you can take the lift up. When you get off the lift, hike/ride your bike on the FS road about 1 mile past the entrance to Diggler and you'll find some pirate lines. These will be nothing like what you find at Winter Park or Keystone, and you'll hike a bike a lot, but there's some fun steep lines.

    Hermosa Creek trail is one of the most scenic and fun trails I have rode. When I rode I paid the $25 dollars to shuttle to the top. Its not too technical but offers a fun downhill with tons of wildlife. There are several river crossings so plan on your bike getting dirty. If you ever go to Durango this is a must ride trail. I can't wait to go back and ride it again.
