Horse Gulch is an amazing trail system that starts right in town, imagine being able to sneak out a lunch or after work for a quick ride. Its one of those things in life that makes me wish I lived in Durango, well that and all the other amazing mountain biking trails in the area. There is riding here for all ability levels, beginners can push themselves to the next level, intermediate riders can do skills work and more advanced riders will just thoroughly enjoy everything Horse Gulch has to offer.
Coming from Texas, I heard all about how good this trail was. Got some tips from lbs, and decided to do the "meadow loop" counter clockwise. The trail reminded me of any trail in Dallas, except that it was almost exactly 30 straight minutes of slow uphill. Based on that alone, I would rate this trail a negative if it were possible. BUT, the trail redeemed itself slightly with the other half being all downhill. Not good downhill, kinda flowy, but at least it wasn't uphill. I can't recommend this to anyone other than someone who just needs a quick MTB fix.
