Adventure Origins Overnighter - Short Loop

Epic route / Bikepack

25 miles



This short, adventurous overnight starts in the wonderful hamlet of Beulah, Colorado and makes its way out Squirrel Creek - the first USFS recreation area in the country. Day one is the bulk of the route's challenge, through the Pueblo Mountain park's Carhart trail and up Squirrel Creek to Davenport Campground. Carhart trail is mostly moderate terrain, though exposed in spots. Expect very challenging, chunky terrain in many spots along Squirrel Creek. Day two features a fast descent on CO Highway 78/Twelve Mile Highway, Colorado's last unpaved state highway. Careful in the turns!

 Make sure to give yourself time for some coffee stops and a few photos!
