1st ride of the Whole Enchilada. Advanced riding skills required. Most difficult section of the Enchilada. Ride is in forested mountain terrain. Starts at 10500 feet and tops out at 11216 feet. Climb is approximately 700 feet to top of Burro Pass in less than 1 mile. Descends 1860 feet in just over 2 miles. Tight switchbacks, loose igneous rock, creek crossings, exposed roots all challenge your technical skills. Average grade is 14%. Sections where the grade exceeds 20% are common. Check your brakes before attempting.

Disclaimer

Does not open until July 1 at the earliest - often later, depending on snow pack.
