Mountain Biking Rollins Pass

***   Add a review
#541 of 1,345 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#5,472 in the world

Rollins Pass (a.k.a. Corona Pass) sits above the popular ski areas around
Winter Park, between Winter Park and Rollinsville. The pass is traversed by
two unpaved roads, mostly the former roadbed of the Denver and Salt Lake
Railway which abandoned the route in 1928. The pass climbs about 2,800
feet in a little over 15 miles. Starting at around 9,000ft. and climbing to a
summit of 11,606ft.

You can travel completely across into Winter Park, or I recommend going up
and back. The route is very obvious and there are other 4x4 trails
connected to it. It's a hard packed rock/dirt road through terrific scenery
(especially in the fall).

Estimated ride time would be 3-5 hours up, and around 2 hours down.

    An easy climb on an old railroad grade. The views are amazing, and if you like to ride at high altitude - then I would recommend this ride. If you are looking for good single track riding - then look elsewhere. This ride also makes a great ride over the divide and down into Winter Park if you have someone pick you up there. You can also link up with Roger's Pass trail and others. Pay attention to the weather when you reach the top - we got caught in a pretty bad storm and cut across the loop at the top to get back below tree line. Good times.

    Good climber with great views. Some great photo ops. Very rocky and bumpy ride down.
