Biking Huts

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

Mountain Bike Hut Trips

We have devoted over twenty-five years to creating and perfecting destination hut-to-hut travel. Both mountain bike routes provide a premium, minimalist experience, for the do-it-yourself adventurer. On either of the two routes, you may ride the ‘standard route’ (historic logging, mining, ranching roads). Or if you are a more technically motivated single track rider, choose the ‘single track alternates’ on four out of the seven days total, provided on each route.

Why this trip is awesome

Why you can do this awesome and remote trip...
  1. Your bike will be properly tuned with new tires, brake pads, etc., before your trip.
  2. You will have a variety of excellent navigational ‘tools’ (Maps, GPS tracks, turn by turn Route Descriptions).
  3. You will be in great condition with all the training you are doing to get in shape for your trip!

  4. You can go light because you don’t need to bring the kitchen sink. We even have one guy, the ultimate minimalist, who has ridden the routes about nine times and goes out with a whopping total of five pounds of gear, no joke!

Why this trip will be tons of fun...
  1. The western landscapes you ride through are nothing less than stunning.
  2. You will come home with memories and stories of a lifetime.

  3. Who knows what kind of epic weather the Weather Gods will throw at you that will make for a great story; perfect sunny days, driving rain, blowing snow, pounding sleet, man eating mud holes, blistering sun, wind driven dust storms, or bugs that can carry you away. Luckily, at both ends of the day, you and your buddies can relax in a comfortable hut protected from the elements! ‘No crawling into a leaky tent and sleeping on a pile of rocks for you’!!!
  4. You will be well rested for your next day’s ride after sleeping on comfortable 4’’ vinyl covered sleeping pads and eating all the tasty grub and beer you can get down your gullet.
  5. Awesome single track trails and backcountry dirt roads to ride on.

Mountain Bike Routes

6 Night / 7 Day

Our six night/ seven day bike routes start in either Telluride, CO or Durango, CO and finish in the world renowned biking destination, Moab, Utah. Each hut is approximately 35 miles apart and is equipped with food, water, propane cook stove and lights, sleeping gear, and all cookware and utensils you need. Colder huts in the higher elevations also have a wood stove to keep it nice and cozy and to dry out gear. Maps, written route descriptions, and GPS tracks will lead you between each hut. These routes follow dirt road and single-track trails from the high alpine tundra of the San Juan Mountains to the desert slick rock and canyon country of Utah. The standard routes stay on dirt/jeep/and fire roads everyday and on over four of the seven days, there are great single track options on both routes. With the only, A to B, hut-to-hut based system in the US, we provide the adventure of bike packing/touring without the weight of supplies and gear by offering fully stocked huts with minimal route finding challenges.
