Mountain Biking Empire Pass

*****   Add a review
#173 of 1,359 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#1,828 in the world

This was the old stage road between Georgetown and Empire.Now it's a nice piece of single track about a mile in length that connects the two towns. On your bike ride back under the overpass follow the frontage road up a steep hill to the right. The singletrack starts at the end of the frontage road and climbs for about a mile to the top of Empire Pass. From here there are several options left goes up Bard Creek to Domocrat and Republican mtns. It's a steep climb to the top. Or if you go right the road leads to Empire.

    Empire Pass is also called Union Pass by locals, but on maps it's refferred to as Empire Pass.
