Bikepacking

bikepacking

When mountain biking and camping intersect, amazing things can happen.

Simply put, bikepacking is the marriage of two trail-lovers’ favorite activities: mountain biking and camping.

Take the freedom of multi-day backcountry backpacking, and add the range and thrill of mountain biking to create one unforgettable adventure.

Bikepacking the San Juan Mountains around Durango gives you the flexibility to explore places less traveled via singletrack trails, gravel, and abandoned dirt roads, all while carrying only the most essential camp gear.
