Colorado National Monument

Colorado, USA

Mountain - New - Long

Colorado National Monument is a point to point ride through high desert canyon-lands. This route was used in the 1980's Coors Classic road race and later featured in the movie American Flyers. The ride features a solid climb up a red rock canyon with switchbacks and even a tunnel. Higher up the road is just feet from very high cliffs down into canyons. You should be able to get glimpses of the deep canyons next to the road. After a quick stop at the visitors centre, the road has a rapid descent to the park exit through two more tunnels and spectacular red rock canyon walls.
