Durango to Paradox

Durango to Paradox is a 4 night/ 5 day ride that uses the first 4 huts on the longer Durango to Moab Route. The first two days, you’ll cross the alpine terrain of the San Juan Mountains. Then you will descend into the high mountain deserts above Paradox. The first day boasts a great singletrack alternate on the Colorado Trail which is not to be missed if you are a strong singletrack rider. The second and fourth day have great singletrack options as well. You will need to schedule a shuttle to pick you up in the tiny town of Paradox, CO. Although this trip misses out on the last two days of riding in the La Sal Mountains, it is perfect for those adventurers who must fit their entire vacation into a week.

What people are saying

If you are used to fending for yourself in the wilds, backpacking or whatever, this system is an awesome way to get a little comfort and support without loading up like a pack mule...The huts were clean, well stocked, and nicely hidden so no one passing on the dirt road would ever know they are there.
