This is a beautiful long day ride depending on how much time you stop.Which could and should be considerable. It could be a week ride.This is one of Americas most beautiful rides, through the San Juan Mts. in SW CO. climbing to 11,ooo feet twice, Molas Pass, and Red Mountain. Silverton, Ouray, Telluride, are historic towns to stop and visit. Camping places along the road and hotels in these towns. This is a ride you won't forget. I have done it a number of times over the years.Marshallmoto

San Juan Skyway is absolutely awesome! I found starting in Cortez a little less traffic and slightly cheaper hotels.

My wife and I are spoiled now. Riding less than a year, this route was a bit intimidating. But having done it a couple of times, our riding confidence has improved dramatically. The scenery is incredible. Just DO IT!
