Trail Description
About this trail
The Burro Pass trail climbs straight up from the road, gaining over a thousand vertical feet in a mile and a half. The top of Burro Pass is almost above treeline, sitting just below several gorgeous mountain tops. The top of the pass (over 11,000 feet above sea level) marks the official beginning of The Whole Enchilada descent, which drops 7,000 vertical feet all the way down to the green river.

After you pass the top of the pass, the bottom drops out of the trail, descending as steeply as it climbed before. Rocks, roots, and creek crossings abound... hang on to your helmet! And prepare to shred!

Lower down the trail mellows, flowing through the trees and eventually feeding into the Dry Creek trail. To continue The Whole Enchilada route, ride past the campground, down the gravel road, and pick up the Hazard County trail.

Review: The trail up to the top of Burro Pass is a super steep grunt... yeah, I hiked almost all of it. Once you get to the top and head back down, the descent is just as steep--straight up brake burning! Awesome start to The Whole Enchilada.

Review: A real grunt of a climb, but well worth the incredible downhill. Great linked up with Porcupine Rim.
