Monarch Crest Trail


Monarch Crest Trail
Monarch Crest Trail is a Colorado Classic...
...one of the best one-day mountain bike rides, period. It starts at the visitor center at the top of Monarch Pass. There are several bailout points to roads that hook back to civilization, but the best ride is the full one -- 30-some miles that drops down off the mountain ridges in a sometimes puckering descent to Rainbow Trail. Rainbow is a beauty; narrow cruiser singletrack with sudden thrusting uphills that give you true interval training at the end of the day, spiking heartrates and making legs wobbly. An awesome ride, available only limited months of the year when the snows are off the high ridges.
