Description

The trailhead for the Dotsero Ute Trail is just north of the I-70 Dotsero exit on the Colorado River Road. The gravel parking lot is on the west side of the road. No bathrooms are located at the trailhead, but there are some back in the truck parking area near the interstate.

The trail starts on singletrack switchbacks out of the parking lot until you meet up with the main trail. From here on, the trail is an abandoned doubletrack. It's reverting back to singletrack-like status in many places. The hardest part of the ride is the first quarter mile.

The ride is a series of steep climbs followed by easier flat sections. Riders in good shape should be able to ride the full climb. If you have to do some walking, the steep sections are not too long before you get to a mellower section.

At the end of the mapped trail, you hit private property and the end of public access. Turn around for a rippin' descent back to the car. Those steeper rocky sections on the way up ride pretty well on the way down.
