Trail Description
About this trail
This was the old Colorado Trail route now it's the CDT. This is a hard technical ride with a heinous hike-a-bike to the top of Hope Pass. Pedal about 8 miles up the road to the Sheep Gulch Trailhead . Turn right and begin the 2 ½ mile 2500 ft. hike-a-bike to the top of Hope Pass. Just keep telling yourself it's only 2 ½ miles! The first section off the pass is deff black! I took a nice tumble down the hill after loosing control in some scree. It's about a 6 mile downhill ride to the lake. Follow the CDT along the lake to the Colorado Trail turn right. From twin Lakes the Colorado Trail crosses 3-4 ridges, follows some old roads and has miles of fine singletrack . The trail is well marked with CT symbols . Just pay attention and you shouldn't have any route finding difficulties

Review: This ride is only for sick individuals that think they have to ride their bike every where they can! Sweet section of the CDT. Gets one black diamond.
