Join us on a guided hut to hut gravel bikepacking experience

Colorado’s 10th Mountain Division Hut System offers limitless ways to explore the Rocky Mountain backcountry with the comfort of a comfy bed and rustic roof overhead. Join us for this classic Colorado hut-to-hut gravel bike adventure. We will utilize two well appointed 10th Mountain Hut Division Huts – the Peter Estin Hut and the Harry Gates Hut, with the option to stay at the Beyul Retreat for a third night if desired. The entire ride takes place in the White River and Holy Cross National Forests.

This hut-to-hut bike adventure starts near the town of Eagle. Here we get on our
bikes and ride up to 24 scenic miles on forest service roads that are mostly dirt and
gravel. The last 8 miles from Yeoman Park to the Harry Gates Hut is steep and
somewhat technical. After a casual start we depart the Peter Estin Hut for 10.5
miles of glorious downhill riding to the Harry Gates Hut. From the Harry Gates Hut
we have options to bike 32.5 miles on mostly downhill forest service roads and
paved roads, past Ruedi Reservoir along the gold medal waters of the Frying Pan
River all the way to the town Basalt. Or we can add another night with a 11.5 mile
bike to the Beyul Resort. These trips are always custom suited for our clients and
there are great options for additional bike loops or scenic day hiking from either the
Peter Estin or Harry Gates Huts.
