Rolling Pass-White Creek

The July rains have begun and we finally got the 416 Fire under control. The Colorado Trail has reopened and we have been hitting up the high country rides. Last weekend we rode from the top of Molas pass on the CT over Rolling Pass, to White Creek, Engine Creek, Cascade Creek Trails. 25 miles, 3,000 feet climbing and about 5,000 feet of downhill.

Monarch Crest

I was stoked to finally ride the Monarch Crest Trail. Listed as one of the top five rides in Colorado, this trail did not disappoint. I started in Poncha Springs, using High Valley Bike Shuttle to get me to the top of Monarch Pass. From there I rode Monarch Crest to Silver Creek finishing on Rainbow Trail. All told 38 miles, 2,600 feet elevation gained and close to 6,000 feet descended. An epic ride for sure!
