The La Garita Bypass circumvents the 129,626-acre La Garita Wilderness section of the Colorado Trail, where mountain bikes aren’t allowed. The road bypass begins in Saguache Park and runs to the highway between Lake City and Creede.
If thru bikepacking the route, this is a good opportunity to drop into Lake City to resupply. While options in Lake City are limited and expensive, there is one small grocery store that provides all of the essentials.
Mostly smooth and non-technical singletrack with unavoidable obstacles 2in/5cm tall or less. Avoidable obstacles may be present. Ideal for beginner riders.
