Discover Canyon Country

Day 1

Day One – Golden, CO to Montrose, CO

Golden to Montrose: Pick up our motorcycles, stow your excess gear, and let’s head up scenic Clear Creek Canyon before picking up I-70 for Georgetown, CO. Ascend to 12,200 feet over Guanella Pass and drop down to Hwy 285 for a quick trip over Kenosha Pass and then dirt roads over 12,200 ft Marshall Pass. The guided motorcycle trip will take us on a quick diversion up to one of the hidden Colorado gems; Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park for a view of the amazing spires in the 3000 ft deep canyon.

Day 2


Day Two – Montrose to Moab

A lightly travelled, well paved tarmac winding along a picturesque river should inspire any rider. Combine it with a beautiful canyon road climbing into the Lasalle Mountains and you have an epic ride. Now throw in a 4000 foot drop down a small paved twisty tarmac with amazing views of the Fisher Towers followed by a final winding, scenic stretch along the mighty Colorado River and you will begin to understand why this is one of my favorite days of riding.

Day 3


Day Three – Moab: Enjoy a day of touring Arches National Park, hiking Canyonlands, white water rafting the Colorado River, or mountain biking the world famous Slickrock Trail. Moab, Utah has too much to offer to not spend a full day here on your guided motorcyle ride.
