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

We did the Durango to Paradox trip in late July. It was a GREAT trip. The SHJS peeps did all in their power to make this an epic trip. The huts were stocked with food and water, the maps & GPS coordinates never got us lost…the views were nothing short of amazing.Ok, so the climbing was a bit rough for us sea-level creatures... but the adventure was worth it. The trip is very affordable. I'm already thinking about doing the Telluride to Moab in the future.
