Boggy Draw Loop is a popular ride with beginners because it is mostly flat. The trail weaves through scattered ponderosa pine, oak brush and an occasional meadow. Look for carsonite posts at road crossings so you don’t get off track. The Boggy Trailhead also hosts three other trails that offer a wide variety of terrain and range of difficulties.

History: The Boggy Draw Loop is the original trail in the Boggy Draw network. Much of this trail was built by linking together cow paths created by the cattle that graze here every summer. Eventually, the Mavericks Loop trail was added along with the Bean Canyon Loop and Italian Canyon Loop.

Where's the Trailhead?


Bean Canyon/Boggy Draw Access Point

To main trailhead:

Beginning in downtown Dolores, turn north off of Highway 145 onto 11th Street and follow the road (which becomes County Road 31) up to the top of the mesa. Turn right (east) on Road W and travel approximately one mile until you cross a cattle guard and the forest boundary. The parking lot and trailhead is located on the left side of road once you enter the Forest boundary.
