    Roughly how long does the whole enchilada/ burro pass climb take?

    Hi All
    last october I took the shuttle up like everyone else & had my mind blown riding down the whole enchilada. in the UK at least I love the 10-12hr rides & its got me wondering, how long roughly does it take to ride from town & up to burro pass please?
    yes I love climbing, to the point of unreal suffering.

    appreciate info from anyone whos climbed to burro.

    thanks!

    Its awesome to to do the whole thing, especially if you still have enough juice after a 4-6 hour climb to enjoy the singletrack. I rode the whole thing as a loop from town in the fall of 2016 with a couple buddies. I was the slower of the three and my total time was 8.5 hours with a moving time of 7.5 hours. Here was my ride. https://www.strava.com/activities/732638104
    Some more poking on Strava or Garmin should unearth a segment of the entire loop that could give you a better idea how you fit into the range of riders who have done the full loop.

    My ride from the trailhead (not from down) up to Burro pass was about 6.5 hours. Take plenty of water (or a water filter)..I ran out close to the top, and couldn't do the whole thing down because of that. Going up the actual Enchilada trail will take a lot longer (but maybe not as smart as) the the loop road mentioned earlier.

    Good point about the water. We had a water cache at Geyser Pass. We topped off up there which allowed us to finish it without dying of dehydration.
