Backcountry Adventure for all Seasons

MTB Bike Huts

The original hut to hut biking at its best. Enjoy open
country & beautiful single-track.

Skiing Huts

Warm, dry huts separated by ski and snowshoe
adventures. What could be better?

Thru-Hiking

Eliminate the weight on a 30-mile hike, starting at the top of Last Dollar Pass (10,700′) just outside of Telluride and hiking all the way to Ouray. Big views, stream crossings and wildflowers abound on this trek. The trail starts on the southwest corner of the Sneffels Range, enters the “Mt. Sneffels Wilderness Area” and traverses the entire North Slope of the Sneffels range.

Peak-Bagging

Use San Juan Hut System’s huts as ‘base camps’ for summiting the spectacular peaks of the Sneffels Range. With 20 plus peaks over 13,000′ and Mt. Sneffles capping the range at 14,150′ it’s easy to wear off a lot of boot sole here! From the classics of the Snake Couloir and the North Buttress on the North Face of Mt. Sneffels, remote routes on Dallas and Wollcott, days and days of climbing can be done here!

Trail Running

Stretch your legs out and kick it up a notch on the historic Alder Creek and Dallas Trails. Mountain runners use the same trails connecting these four huts (North Pole, Blue Lakes, Ridgway, and Burn) that hikers and backcountry skiers have used for over 25 years.

Mountain Biking

Just as when using the huts for hiking or trail running, there are a number of ways to use San Juan Hut System’s huts for Mountain Biking. There are loops, A to B traverses and ‘out and backs’. Difficulty levels range from short day, easy beginner rides to huge days of very advanced technical riding with incredibly sustained downhill runs!

Horseback Riding

Horeback riding coming soon! San Juan Hut Systems is working on developing a 2 night/3 day trail ride via horseback along the Dallas Trail/Alder Creek Trail system with overnights at Ridgway Hut and North Pole Hut ending at Last Dollar Pass. Stay tuned for details!

Special Events

Use San Juan Hut System huts as a location for Family Reunions and Get-Togethers. Get out of town and go for a hike, a climb, a run or a bike ride.

A "Monumental" way to start the Tour of the Canyons!!

 

When looking to ride our Tour of the Canyons route, one should most definitely consider starting the journey with a great cup of coffee and breakfast from Bestslope Coffee in Fruita, CO. From there, you'll be feeling the buzz as you ascend an ideal bike gradient into the Colorado National Monument for stunning scenery and smooth twist and turns.

 

You will add mileage, 30 miles, and climbing, 2800 ft, to the day, but most would agree it's worth every single pedal stroke! You can also refill your water and/or get a snack as this route spits you out in downtown Grand Junction where our current route starts. If you are interested in this we can supply you with the GPX tracks!
