Marathon

Cost: 0$
License: Burn it and flush it
Course Description: Detailed Directions:

1. From Bread, follow CR 250 to CR 252, turning left and continue to West Animas Road, CR 203 turning right. Follow CR 203 to CR 201 and follow signs to Hermosa Creek Trailhead.

2. At the Hermosa Creek Campground, follow the Hermosa Creek (lower) Trailhead to the Hermosa Creek (Upper) Trailhead at the intersection with Hermosa Park Road/Bolam Pass Road, turning left. Follow Bolam Pass Road up to Celebration Lake.

3. At Celebration Lake turn onto the Colorado Trail. Follow this trail down to the Junction Creek Trailhead. At Junction Creek, follow the paved road back into Durango to Main Street, turn north for Durango Brewing Company.

Finish!

Note: This one should be impossible to get lost on…although that means, of course, someone inevitably will. ;-) This will be an epic ride on the CT through Black Hawk and Indian Peaks. Expect ~97-miles and over 13.5 of climbing, with 12 of those miles paved road, 4 dirt road, and the remaining singletrack trail! Don’t miss the opportunity!

“B” Ride option: For those wanting a lesser route, after climbing Hermosa Trail, follow Bolam Pass Road to the left hand turn at Hotel Draw – climb here to the Colorado Trail. This will cut out ~3000-ft of climbing and ~15-miles of the Black Hawk loop. Estimate here should be around 82-miles total. Please note your intent to do “B” ride in the registration
