MTB Festival and Flow Trail Race presented by McDonald’s


Purgatory offers some of the best mountain bike riding anywhere, and the McDonald’s Mountain Bike Festival & Flow Trail Race is all about celebrating our amazing trails, unbeatable scenery, and our love of the sport!

And, it’s the one-year anniversary of the Divinity Flow Trail!  This amazing new trail opened last year and was described as a “game changer” on the Durango mountain biking scene.  The trail is packed with fun features and is Durango’s only lift-served downhill flow trail.
