The Colorado Trail is a 535-mile trail connecting Denver and Durango,
Colorado. It has many epic sections with great singletrack and great scenery.
The easiest way to ride it without arranging shuttles is to choose a segment
and ride it out-and back. There's a lot to be said for out-and-back rides:
uphill grunts become downhill hoots; there is a whole new view to be looking
at; in general, the coming back portion feels like a whole new trail.
This route is the southwestern terminus going out-and-back from the Junction
Creek Trailhead just outside Durango. In just over 9 miles of climbing, you will
reach a highpoint which is a good place to turn around. You will know you are
there because there is a great view point to grab a snack, and the trail starts
dropping steeply down the back side.
