This epic mountain bike trip includes food and drinks, 3 days riding, two nights in our cozy huts and the deluxe trip includes an additional night at the exclusive Gateway Canyons Resort (double occupancy).
You’ll meet “The Hut Guy” at 7 a.m. for pre-trip orientation before hitting the Smith Point Trail, a single track gem which winds through the Dominguez Canyon. You’ll navigate pristine single track through a pinion and juniper desert before a big climb into a huge forest of ponderosa pines and aspens before reaching your first destination — a backcountry cowboy camp where you’ll spend the first night of your mountain bike trip.
After a good nights rest and a big breakfast you will have a chance to chart your course on day 2. The direct route to the hut is a scenic ten mile ride which includes some smooth single track through a thick aspen grove. For those who can’t get enough you will be provided with directions for an alternate loop that will take you north on the Uncompahgre Plateau and onto some more technical trails with some gripping down and breath taking up hills. Choose this route and you can expect 28 miles and to be in the saddle for around six hours.
The last day of your mountain bike trip includes more technical single/double track or an alternate non-technical jeep trail route. Either way it’s a great day of riding with huge views of the La Sal mountains and a 3000 foot plunge into Gateway Canyon. You’ll cruise the final miles to the secluded Gateway Canyons Resort. If you’re spending the night you can check in, enjoy a hot shower and explore what the resort has to offer.
After a gourmet meal and a recuperative night, spend a lazy day around the resort’s pool, tube down the Dolores River or try your hand at fly fishing. We encourage you to visit the resort’s website for a complete list of amenities.
