Shuttle Ride: It takes about one hour to drive from Breckenridge to Kenosha Pass.

One of the Colorado Trail's finest segments; alpine vistas and flawless downhills!

Segment 6 is a true Colorado Trail gem! It's hard to find 30+ miles of singletrack which leaves you wishing there was more at the rides end. The ride starts at a high elevation pass alternating a few warm-up climbs with downhill sections before taking on a long climb to Georgia Pass, which tops out just shy of 12,000'.

After a quick rest and enjoying the impressive alpine vista, the amazing yet demanding downhill begins with a long, rocky and techy section before coming to the middle fork of the Swan River. Recover for the next few miles before crossing the North Fork jeep road to tackle the rides most demanding climb. Push on as it's all downhill from here...for ten fast and flowy miles!!

Logistically, arranging the car shuttle is an important and challenging part of this ride. It takes about one hour to drive from Breckenridge to Kenosha Pass. Consider camping or finding lodging in Breckenridge then staying for a few days to enjoy some of the endless riding opportunities in summit county. Broken Compass Brewery is a great apr├Ęs ride watering hole two miles south of the rides end along the Blue River Bikeway.
