Sometimes the most challenging and arduous adventure is the one in your own backyard. The Colorado Trail links up the state's largest metropolitan region with some of the best mountain bike trails in the country, spanning over 500 miles from Denver to Durango. During the summer, the trail clears of snow and those daring enough to attempt a through-ride set out into the unknown. This past summer a group of Colorado-based Yeti Ambassadors set out to give it a go for themselves. A film by Joey Schusler.
