Pueblo, CO to Durango, CO
« on: December 06, 2009, 08:56:19 pm »
I'm interested in finding a route from Pueblo, CO to Durango, CO.  My plan is to take a portion of the Trans Cont route from VA to Pueblo, CO.  From Pueblo I will need to get to Durango (Colorado Trail TH).  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks, Steve

Follow the ACA Western Express Route, Section 4, from Pueblo to Ridgeway. From there you can take highway 550 south to Durango. Or, for a somewhat longer route, take highway 62 and 145 to Cortez, and then highway 160 to Durango. The scenery in southwestern Colorado cannot be beat.

For other ideas, go to www.ridetherockies.com and click on "About Us" and then "history". You'll find 23 years of old routes. Pretty much any road used by RTR is an acceptable road for cycling.
