The Cottonwood Tour is both a local and visitor favorite bike ride, and is a great introduction to the trails in Salida. Cottonwood drys out sooner than many of our other guided rides, so a great options for spring and fall! This is also a great “warm-up” for riding some of the bigger high-alpine trails.
Season: April-October (roughly)
Duration: 3-4.5 hours (includes 20 minute shuttle)
Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced – Experience a full spectrum of trail features on one trail. The trail starts out on Beasway with a few miles of climbing from the parking lot before descending with some whoop-inducing berms. Rhumba traverses along a ridge and up and down into Cottonwood Gulch. The Waterfall section will test your technical skills (walking is totally okay!) before the trail finishes on the Arkansas Hills system to ride back to the shop.
