MIlk and Cookies is one of the easiest trails (especially when ridden with combo) in the McCoy Flats trail system. Milk and Cookies can be done by beginner riders although there still may be a few sections that need to be walked on the way back by completely green riders.
Milk and Cookies starts out on the East end of the McCoy flats parking area and immediately dives down into a wide berm. The trail continues to go up and down throughout with no real sustained climbs or descents.
While there is nothing really techincal in this ride if you dont have a lot of time or are showing someone new to the sport there are still a few fast flowy sections that can be fun along with some technical climbs at the end.
Vernal is located right on highway 40 which runs from east to west from Denver, CO to Salt Lake City, UT.
You could also fly into Salt Lake City, UT which has an international airport and then rent a car to drive to Vernal. (Approx 2.5 hrs.) Keep in mind there are no bike rentals in Vernal so you will need to bring your bike or rent one in Salt Lake City.
There are several hotels in Vernal I would recommend one of the 2 Marriots, Comfort Inn, Landmark Inn, and Ledgestone Inn. I have personally stayed at the Marriot, and the Landmark. Both hotels were great!
The local bike shop is Altitude Cycle. Altitude has always been great to me. They do repairs, maintenance, have great prices on bikes and often have sales. You can pickup whatever you need there and the staff is great. Let them know Kyle sent you!
