REGION: Uncompahgre National Forest - Northern   TITLE: Paradox Trail Mountain Biking (Printable GPS Map)
NOTES: West of Montrose, the Paradox Trail links Tabeguache Trail with Kokopellis Trail in Moab. Most of its 100+ miles follow existing Jeep and country roads, and are accessible from May through November. The route rolls through remote desert with over 14,000 feet of climbing along the way.

This trail is marked every mile and at key intersections with brown, carsonite posts with the Paradox Trail emblem. Use of topographical maps and a compass is strongly recommended. Drinking water is not found on the trail but in most of the drainages. Proper treatment is recommended.

The Paradox Trail can be accessed on the Uncompahgre Plateau, where it joins the Tabeguache Trail, or on the Manti-La Sals, where it joins the Kokopelli run into Moab. The trail runs through Bedrock, Paradox, and an alternate section allows mountain bike riders to go into Nucla to resupply.

All these trails are marked in sections, with many accessible at either end by support vehicles.
