Ryan wrote on February 03, 2011: This trail system has become an almost exclusive mountain bike area as I rarely see other users on it. It is truly a wonderful asset for the Dolores community and all are welcome to come enjoy a great riding experience. Please remember to be respectful of other users.

Cmar wrote on January 27, 2011: Mountain bikes are destroying Boggy Draw. They are creating rutted trails that keep getting wider each year. Mountain bikers are rude to other users. There is increase errosion and disturbance of wildlife. The last thing needed are more bikers showing up!
