Durango Mountain Resort Overview
Take your bike with you to the top and access miles of bike trails for all ability levels from the base or via chairlift. From scenic novice loops to the challenging 1990 World Mt. Bike Championship Trail, Purgatory is perfect for exploring the spectacular Hermosa Valley, or getting in some screaming downhill. Our trail map details 10 distinct rides. You'll experience the natural beauty of the area with mixed spruce and aspen forests, wildlife and grass and wildflower meadows as you traverse the mountainside.
For those who seek more adventurous rides, test your "flow" riding skills on the pump track or time yourself on our mountain bike short track. The Durango Devo Coca-Cola Bike Park is conveniently located in the base area and is a source of great fun for participants and spectators alike.
Getting to Purgatory Mountain Resort
Getting to Purgatory Resort is easy. Head north on US Hwy 550/Main Avenue for approximately 25 miles. Then follow Hwy 550 until Mile Marker 49 and Purgatory will be on the west side of the highway.

Purgatory has miles of trails for all ability levels accessible from the base area or via chairlift. No matter where you are on the trail, you’ll experience the natural beauty of the area with mixed spruce and aspen forests, wildlife and grass and wildflower meadows as you traverse the mountainside.
DURANGO, CO – With a history rich in mountain biking including hosting the first UCI World Mountain Bike Championships in 1990, and being located just outside the fat-tire destination of Durango, many have scratched their heads in recent years as to why Purgatory Resort didn't offer much in the way of lift-served mountain biking. Sure, you could load a bike on the chairlift and access cross-country trails, but there wasn't much in the way of an actual bike park or gravity offerings. But that's all about to change.
