    Destinations ... Why Not Try a HUT-to-Hut

    A few years ago I tried one of these rides ... most fun I had riding bikes! There is still time to go. Come on, don't just keep riding that same trail day after day!Round up some other riders or go by yourself.

    A few years ago I joined 3 other riders I didn't know and had a blast. I also gained 3 good friends who have given me a standing invitation to come ride with them in Pennsylvania and Florida.

    Click the following link to read about my experience.

    Thanks for posting this awesome trip report. This seems much more doable to me than some of the really high elevation hut to hut trips.
    What were the dates for your trip and could post the link to Kevin's business?
    Also, did your trip fee include the night at the Gateway Resort?

    Destinations ... Why NotTry a Hut-to-Hut

    Dear June,

    First off, thanks for checking out my website. Now to answer your questions.

    I went on the 3rd week of June.

    The link provided by jncarpenter above is absolutely correct.

    The night at the Gateway was included as was a $50 voucher at the resort (which we all used up that night ordering dinner and drinks!)

    As stated in my report, I challenge you to get a hotel and food for 3 days/nights in Colorado and compare the cost. I bet you the costs are comparable.

    Staying out there is a different experience ... and a whole lot more fun!

    Give Kevin a call. He is great guy.

    Very cool. Thanks for the write-up and review. It does sound a little more mellow than the ones I've heard about along the CDT between New Mexico and Colorado. How much double track compared to singletrack would you guess? It's sort of hard to tell from the maps you provided.

    haha, I really enjoyed reading about the interactions between you and the youngsters. Funny how age can be quite subjective in situations like that.

    Great trip, lots of opportunities to add on extra singletrack loops if you haven't had enough between huts (there was a bit more doubletrack and dirt road for my taste, but the location was spectacular). We rented a room at the Canyons for the afternoon, used the pool, showered, had some appy's and beer, then drove to Moab via John Brown Canyon, quite a spectacular ride, and rode the Whole Enchilada the next day.
