This Continental Divide Trail segment can be ridden in either direction or as a loop with other roads/trails. There will probably be some hike a bike in either direction except for the very fit rider. This is high elevation single track adventure riding at its finest. The views from the Continental Divide are fantastic. The trail ranges from smooth and flowy to steep and knarly with everything in between. This segment of trail was recently constructed or re-constructed.
