My group just completed the Telluride to Moab route and I give it 4/5 stars simply because I did not have the option for 4.5 stars. We booked the trip last October, during the "deal day," I believe and had our 8 riders lined up...More

This was an awesome mountain biking adventure/trip! If it's not on your biking "bucket list", it should be. The huts were clean, comfortable and well stocked with a great variety of food and drinks. They even provide a cookbook to make meals using the foods...More

Great trip. Hut locations were phenomenal. Trail maps were spot on (Minor GPS file updates needed.) Would be five stars if some really minor issues were addressed. Lanterns were hit or miss. Some utensils missing. Mostly great though.

Overall, the hut system is an interesting and challenging adventure. The maps and route descriptions they provide are useless! My biggest complaint, and one that they did not really address when I contacted them, is the food. Yes, there is a lot of it; but...More

I would recommend the Sneffels Traverse. It is a 4 night 5 day hiking trip along the north side of the Sneffels Range. It starts at Last Dollar Pass above Telluride and ends in Ouray. Great views of rugged mountains and... More
