Mountain Biking Colorado Trail: Kennebec Pass To Junction Creek

*****   Add a review
#97 of 1,373 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#699 in the world

The final, yet spectacular, section of the Colorado trail combining amazing views with breathtaking descents. Above tree line riding combined with lush and technical creekside riding make this one of Colorado's great epics. Although there is 6000 feet of descent, expect a long and difficult climb at mile 7.

Getting there
From Durango, take US 160 west. Just past Hesperus, turn right on Co Rd 124. Take Co Rd 124 to Kennebec Pass and start on the Colorado trail toward Durango from here. Co Rd 124 is a very rugged jeep road as it approaches the pass. This is a very long shuttle and would be well worth hiring a ride up.
