Colorado Trail MTB Tour

On the Colorado Trail MTB tour you visit the San Juan Mountains are among the wildest, most beautiful, and inaccessible mountainous areas in the lower 48 states. The Colorado trail crosses high mountain passes, beneath numerous unnamed waterfalls, and traverses fields of verdant wildflowers at elevations that rarely drop below 10,000 feet. Large fauna of most every-type inhabit this landscape. This tour offers out of the ordinary mountain biking, delivering cyclists into a back-country setting far away from accessible trail-heads. Rarely will one see another person let alone another cyclist.
The idea is to give you an opportunity to pedal some of Colorado’s most remote, fascinating, and inaccessible terrain. It will contain sections of single track, unimproved roads, sections with hardly a trail and everything in between.

Highlights

  • Monarch Crest Trail: ride a stunning route into the foothills of the San Juan
  • Mountains: Cannibal Classic route.
  • Crest the Continental Divide for 3 times on this trip.
  • The historic mining town of Silverton

The tour rides through the rugged & remote San Juans. In the late 19th century the tiny mining towns of Ouray, Durango and Telluride, Colorado were remote outposts of civilization. Each town felt they needed a landmark hotel to attract investors and to put their town on the map. In recent years these historic Victorian-Era hotels have seen major renovations and provide an entertaining end to a day of cycling across the Colorado high country. Go ahead, harken back to 1880’s and transform yourself to a time when Victorian opulence like this was reserved for the rich and famous, you’re entitled!
