Top 10 Mountain Biking Trails in the USA - Majestic Dude Ranch

BY Jody Dahl | Fri 09 Sep, 2011

For adrenaline, action and adventure, head to Majestic Dude Ranch in Colorado, USA, home to some of the most awe-inspiring mountain biking trails in the world.

Sitting on the edge of the National Park is Majestic Dude Ranch in Cortez, Colorado. Located near Durango, a town famous for its outdoor adventure pursuits, Majestic offers more than just a western ranch experience, with an unbeatable cycling program that sets this holiday destination apart from the rest.

This might be a luxury dude ranch, but if you’re not feeling your inner John Wayne there’s an even better way to see the Mesa Verde national forest. Majestic’s recent investment in a set of full suspension, professional-grade race bikes with optional comfort saddles, is every cyclist’s dream. Majestic’s trail guide and pro cyclist, Nicholas Ian Tyson Jones, will get you kitted out and matched to one of the high end, top-of-the-range bikes, whether you opt for hard tail or soft tail. Having competed in triathlons as part of Team Cervelo and with two World Championship race riding competitions under his belt, Jones guarantees guests adrenaline-fuelled rides on trails such as Hippie Loop and Phil’s World.
The famous Phil’s World is one of the top 10 cycle trails in the United States, a network of single-track trails featuring half-mile climbs, a ‘rollercoaster’ section and several jumps – making this twisting, turning mountain trail one of the fastest growing destinations for mountain bikers the world over. For the less experienced, Jones leads afternoon rides to Boggy Draw and Sand Canyon, but for those really wanting to push it, a rigorous all-day ride along demanding trails is also available. Guests are so won over by Majestic’s awe-inspiring cycling program, they’ve even been known to take a bike home with them!
