This loop is out there! The original road was for wagon traffic to the 1900-era mines and an Army route to keep Bandido raiders at bay. First biked on 1980's rigid frames. Lots of rock, no maintenance, and incredible beauty that isn't on the tourist trail.

Access Info

You have to take a fork off the Pink's Peak Loop onto the Back of Beyond Access just to start. Download those files to help find your way.
