Mountain Biking CDT: Hope Pass

****   Add a review
#513 of 1,348 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#5,245 in the world

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

    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.
