Telluride to Moab

Ages: 14+

Dates: July 23 - August 1

Tuition: $2,150
Overnights: 8

Challenge Level:  

Get ready for the ultimate mountain biking hut-to-hut trip. Enjoy the rustic luxury of the San Juan Hut System's hidden mountain retreats scattered along your route. Start out the front door right here in Telluride and ride 215 miles of single-track, fire roads and ridgelines to Moab, Utah. You will bike "hut-to-hut" each day, stopping off at streams and lakes to cool off, and spending your nights sleeping in your fully equipped cabins. This format allows you to carry only a few items of clothing, snacks and water. The overall adventure between Telluride and Moab provides riders with ample downhill as you will be dropping several thousands of feet in elevation. This trip picks up where other bike programs leave off, offering trail-based guided riding, making it a great option for both the intermediate and advanced riders. Once we reach Moab we’ll reward ourselves with refreshing waterfall hikes, pool side lounging and a massive meal out on the town!
