Whether on a new or old beat, trail blazing is an art form immersed in wild conquest of the unknown. Just as Lewis and Clark went great lengths to discover the richness of America, so does the fat-tire-freak make new tracks on rarely used paths in the endless pursuit of rediscovering remote lands.
The route map shows a trail cutting across and along the Divide. The path creates viable options for riders to climb higher on less stable ground, while remaining up on two wheels longer. Alternate routes are noted for easier or nastier trails, depending on your preference and level of masochistic tendencies.
