  • The playground for X-Roads is among the densest concentration of high peaks and passes in North America.
  • The ride will be self-guided by following GPS Tracks.
  • Local support will be available if there are any issues.

 

  • The Rocky Mountains in this region are called the rooftop of North America.
  • With 12 peaks reaching over fourteen thousand feet, the Collegiate Peaks near Chaffee County are some of the highest peaks in the United States.
  • These peaks and passes form the backbone of the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide.

 

  • The Great Sand Dunes National Monument is one awesome destination if you wish. That loop features an epic pass thru the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness, into the back of the Great Sand Dunes. We will NOT be riding in the Dunes.*

 

  • We recommend leaving early and keeping stops to a minimum. You leave when you wish, ride at your own pace.
  • We also highly recommend you come with a friend and be responsible for each other all through the day.
  • Adventure bikes with off-road tires recommended.*
