The Glade Run Recreation Area is comprised of 19,000 acres of sandy arroyos, slick rock, and rolling terrain. Approximately 42 miles of marked trails are available to mountain bikes which DMBT is the only guide service to have permits from the BLM for. These trails include the classic Road Apple course, one of the longest running mountain bike races, as well as newer trails like Wild Bill, Seven Sisters, and Rigor Mortis.

DMBT’s Mission Statement is “Make friends every ride.” That is certainly true with our good friend Michelle from Tennessee. Michelle’s first tour with us was September 2014. Since then we have been on more than half dozen rides together. She’s a great rider with family ties to Durango that keeps her coming back each year. Happy to be able to keep introducing new trails to her such as Phils World this past weekend. Until the next time, Cheers!
Nothing beats springtime in the Southwest. Snow in the high country to get those last days in on the slopes, and single track drying out down low just itchin to be ridden. While more and more town trails in Durango become ride ready, we are so happy to be the only guide company with permits to lead tours on the fast, flowy, fun trails at Phils World, Alien Run, and Glade Area trail system, all 30-40 minutes from Durango. The Webb family, Tony, Micah, Hollis, and Titus, great riders from Georgia, can check Phils off the “must ride” list.
The 2021 tour season is getting under way. Spring has sprung and DMBT is up and running offering tours to early season hot spots such as Alien Run and the Glade Area Recreation Area which includes the famous Road Apple Course near Aztec, New Mexico. Another early spring option is the ever popular Phil’s World trail system thirty minutes west of Durango near Cortez, Colorado. The past weekend was perfect weather and trail conditions for some high desert riding.
