Vapor Trail 125 Race route in 3 days


This ride covers the enduro marathon Vapor Trail 125 Course over 3 days. This 3 day ride with 2 nights of camping is limited to 10 fit and experienced mountain bikers.  The route covers a bit (a lot!) of everything from railroad grade climbs to seriously steep hike-a-biking above 10,000 feet.  In fact, nearly all of the route is above 9,000 feet and much of it is above 10,500 feet.

• Day one leave from Absolute Bikes up to Blanks Cabin, across to The Cascade railroad grade via the Colorado Trail and a few dirt roads.  Set up camp at the Cascade campground.  Then head down to Mt Princeton Hot Springs Resort for a nice soak.  Return to camp for dinner by the campfire.
• Day two we ride to St. Elmo and continue on the course to Alpine Tunnel, on to Tomichi Pass and the Canyon Creek Trail for a fun downhill finish at Snowblind campground.  Another great meal and evening by the campfire.
• Day three we climb up to Monarch Pass for a day of single track bliss.  Monarch Crest Trail over to Silver Creek Trail, down to the Rainbow Trail and then back to Salida.
