Mountain Biking Sand Canyon Trail
#105 of 1,348 mountain bike trails in Colorado
Route is thru slickrock and singletrack. Thru indian sites, please do not go off trail or bikes will be banned. Built by and for mountain bikes these trails are fun and hard to follow. 2 canyons to ride. There is a large ruin at the top of Sand Canyon main trail but involves a 30 switchback hard climb, not the fun MTB route.

Southwest of Cortez, up McElmo Canyon to signed trailhead, about 15 miles west of Cortez. Spring or autumn best times, but I rode it in mid-summer at sunup. 6000'
