The Trail of the Ancients takes us to one of the more remote mountain ranges in the Southwest, the Abajos. This range is just south of the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The peaks pop right up out of the desert providing us with some of the best possible views of the region. Roughly 1,000 years ago, this area supported a well-established community of Ancestral Puebloans. During this trip we will have the opportunity to visit some of their dwellings which still stand.
The riding is on dirt roads through both alpine and desert terrain. All the climbs are rewarded with awe-inspiring views and fun descents.
This trip is not technical and is great for those with moderate fitness who are ready to try the dirt.
