Nerds Off Road: Sortais Road, Durango Hills

We’ve been exploring the area a little more and since it’s planning to rain on us all weekend, perhaps one of our last weekends to ride, we took off after work to the forest service road right next to the house. It’s gated but a local woman says she rides up there all the time, so we…

Other than some random map searches for off…
