Description

Section 2 of the Great Parks South Route beings in Poncha Springs, Colorado. You may see other cyclists along portions of this route in the state. Between Poncha Springs and Dolores the same roads are used on the Western Express Route. The route crosses a pass almost every day with several being over 9,000 feet.

Many of the passes along this section have climbing lanes for slower-moving traffic. The route skirts Mesa Verde National Park and a spur is shown going into the Park. This World Class Park is well worth a visit. Durango, Colorado, is the endpoint on this route.

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.
