    Transport from Denver Airport to CO Trail Seg. 6 trailhead

    My boyfriend and I going to bikepack a portion of the CO trail in a few weeks. We are flying into Denver and looking for public transportation from Denver to trail head of Segment 6 Kenosha Pass off 285. Any suggestions?

    Are you renting bikes? what kind of transportation do you need?

    You can take RTD from the airport to many different area's within Denver. There are 'mountain shuttles' that take you into Summit, but not sure about getting to Kenosha Pass.... that sort of out in the middle of no-where as far as transportation goes. You could probably make it to Conifer, CO, and the ride from there.

    We are flying out with our bikes so looking for bus or shuttle transport.
    According to RTD website I think the furthest we can get is Pine Junction which is just south of Conifer.

    I'd call Greyhound - it looks like they service Fairplay, CO... which I would expect from Denver would go over Kenosha Pass. Maybe they'll drop you right at the pass?

    Or... drop at Pine Junction. Take the road towards Pine (all down hill, will take you 10 minutes)... get into Pine Valley open space and connect to the CT there. Its an area called Buffalo creek, and there's a huge network of trails that connect in with the CT. You can even hang out and ride around, camp, and get used to the altitude.

    You can take public transportation to pine and kenosha pass is 25 miles from pine. The first 7 miles or so are downhill into bailey which would leave around 18 miles to get to kenosha pass via your bikes. Are you headed back towards denver or heading to breck on the CT.

    There is definitely a good climb to get to kenosha but not insane like some of our mountain passes in colorado.
