Desert Southwest (CO,AZ,UT,NM), Trip Reports » Chasing Colors – Colorado High Country


Had a chance for a quick 2 day trip in the Colorado High Country.  This time of year the Rockies are stunning.   I started in Marble, rode over Schofield Pass, camped a night just off the summit, and rode the 401 down valley before turning around and heading back to Marble.  You can see a full trip report at

Things to Know:  Start in Marble, plenty of parking near Beaver lake.  The ride to Schofield Pass is beautiful but bumpy!  Water is plentiful and not an issue.  The 401 is some nice flowing single track.  Hit the trail at the summit of Schofield Pass, the earlier the better as the trail gets a lot of use.
