Hi guys, I've got a week long trip with the family planned the second week of Sept. and looking for trail recommendations; We're staying somewhere near Purgatory, so mostly looking to ride anything that side of Durango, toward Silverton. Never have ridden MTB in Durango, and I'm excited. What are the "must ride" trails? Thanks!

Agreed you will get more info in the Western Slope forum but I rode in Durango last year for the first time and I cant wait to go back! I dont know about the area closer to Purgatory but must do trails near town include:

Snake Charmer
Rocky Road
Extended ridge
Half ridge
Cowboy upper
Big Canyon
Colorado Trail Junction Creek

My only advice is to avoid the Overend Mountain Park. It was boring with lots of punchy steep climbs. The Telegraph trail system and Grandview ridge are way more fun.
