Mountain Biking CR 175 / Ute Trail

****   Add a review
#425 of 1,353 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#4,153 in the world

CR 175 climbs for 12 miles one-way from 7,000ft Salida to close to 10,000 feet, way up in the Arkansas Hills. Ridden as an out-and-back this would make for a 24 mile ride with a ton of climbing, gorgeous views, and plenty of options to keep riding and/or turn this into a big gravel loop. Some singletrack trails also connect to this road, offering up more interesting routes.

    For a gravel road, this ride is pretty fantastic. Great climbing, gorgeous views... what more could you ask for out of a gravel ride?
