Epic route / Bikepack
This route runs the gamut from silky smooth gravel roads to rough and tumble historic trails (technically former roads!) through the FIRST established recreation area in the US Forest Service: Squirrel Creek canyon. The second day kicks off with a legendary descent of Twelve Mile Highway (CO 78), which is Colorado's last remaining unpaved state highway.
Make sure to give yourself time for some coffee stops and a few photos!
Getting there: We like to start in town and hit up Solar Roast Coffee on the way out. It’s nice to get fueled up before the journey.
