Great Divide MBR Salida, CO to Abiquiu NM July 2011
« on: June 17, 2011, 12:44:32 pm »
I will be riding this section starting early July.  My partner will be following in a camper (4x4 truck with camper on top).  Can a motor vehicle get through all sections, or will alternate routes be needed for the truck?

Thanks for any information on this section,

I think the truck would do alright except for maybe the last bit into Del Norte (after La Garita). I was with a person from Del Norte and we still got confused and ended up on the airport's new runway. It's a short segment, so just send the truck to Del Norte for supplies or something, but you should ride it because it is interesting and fun. It's different catching air with panniers. I haven't been south of Del Norte yet. Have fun!

Thanks.  It does look confusing around the Del Norte Airport.  I'm also concerned about Brozos Ridge in NM.

The newest version (2011) of the map shows the correct way to avoid the airport runway north of Del Norte which is accessible by vehicle. This re-route is also mentioned on the 2009 addenda.
