Recently rode Raiders Ridge, or what some call “Extended Ridge”. Started in town and took Bread Express to Skyline to the Ridge. This is an expert trail, very technical and rocky. I’m sure there are those riders out there that can ride the entire trail without touching a foot down, but I haven’t met one yet.
Raider Ridge is about 2.3 miles dropping about 550 feet. The views of Durango and the Animas Valley are amazing. The entire loop we did was 12.2 miles with over 1,600 feet elevation gain. Check out the go pro vid. I flipped over my bars on one section.
