Trails near Durango or Grand Junction?

I'm going to be living and working this summer in either Durango or Grand Junction, Colorado. Where can I find a list of trails that are in these areas? I'm sure a LBS could help me once I get there, but I'm really eager to see what's in store for me. Anyone have any ideas where to look? Thanks!

there is a trail that leads right into durango, although I doubt you would go from the start in durango to the end, since the end is in denver,

let me know how that is, next year i plan on finding out myself.

Do a Google Search - there are lots of web sites for trails in both towns.

There are about a dozen rides right on the edge of town. You won't have ANY trouble finding some trails once you get there!

I figured this was going to be the case. I've never been through either of these areas, but I thought there would be plenty of trails available. Last year I travelled all over Nevada for the summer, I got to ride in the desert-like mountains near Las Vegas and the snow capped Humboldt-Toyabe mountains in the northern part of the state. Hopefully the hills around Durango and Grand Junction won't kill my legs TOO bad.
