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.

Love the Trails Like a Local

Say Hi

Greet all trail users by saying hi when passing on the trail.

Announce Yourself

Say "on your left" as approaching other trail users from behind.

Pick Up After Yourself

Pick up after yourself and your pet. Please don’t litter.

Keep Dogs on a Leash

Keep your dogs on a leash or leave them at home. Off-leash dogs are not allowed on City Open Space and are the number one source of trail conflict.

Stay on the Trail

Help protect natural areas and habitats by staying on established trails. Creating "social trails", cutting switchbacks, or ignoring trail closures leads to greater erosion and impacts on ecosystems.

Give Uphill Traffic the
Right of Way

Uphill traffic always has the right of way. Downhill traffic must be in control, especially around blind corners, to avoid coming in contact with uphill traffic.

Check Conditions

Boggy Draw still riding great.  Little dusty but was raining/hailing on Saturday which will sweeten the trails.  Smoke could be seen from prescribed Hay Camp fires yesterday from overlook on Italian and additional prescribed fires today near Boggy. A great 20 mile loop to ride (Boggy to Bear Tracks, to Paya, Little Bean & back to Boggy).
