Description

This section of the Great Divide Route crosses the Continental Divide at Rawlins, traversing the wide-open spaces of south-central Wyoming. A portion of the route between South Pass City and Rawlins drops into the Great Divide Basin, a conundrum of a region where falling precipitation drains neither east toward the Atlantic Ocean nor west to the Pacific. Rather, it drains only internally, evaporating or flowing into intermittent lakes. Once in Colorado, you'll be in higher altitudes.

Steamboat Springs, a well-known resort town, is a good place for a stopover day to restock supplies and visit a bike shop. The route crosses the Colorado River and winds its way over several passes into Silverthorne, also along the TransAmerica Trail.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
