Mountain Bike Adventures
San Juan Hut Systems’ mission is to provide low impact, human powered, lightweight back country travel opportunities for the independent health conscious adventurer at a practical price. We have devoted over twenty years to creating and defining destination hut-to-hut skiing and mountain bike travel. Both of our mountain bike routes, and each variation, provide a premium minimalist experience for the do-it-yourself adventurer.
Our 7 day/6 night bike routes start in either Telluride, CO or Durango, CO and finish in the biking capitol of the states, Moab, Utah. Each hut is approximately 35 miles apart and is equipped with food, water, propane cook stove, and wood stove, sleep gear, and all cookware and utensils necessary. These routes follow dirt road and single-track from the high alpine tundra of the San Juan Mountains to the desert slick rock and canyon country of Utah. With the only destination hut-to-hut based system in the US, we provide the adventure of bike touring “without the weight” of supplies and gear by offering fully stocked huts with minimal route finding challenges.
Our 5 day / 4 night bike rides follow the same route, starting in either Telluride or Durango, but finish before descending into the Utah sections. The shorter Telluride route ends in Gateway and the shorter Durango route ends in Paradox. These shorter routes are perfect for those who must fit their adventures into a standard week-long vacation.
