Durango High Country
- Miles of spectacular alpine singletrack
- Rides on the Colorado Trail
- Excellent fireside meals
The singletrack and scenery of the Durango High Country tour are second to none.
The singletrack and scenery of the Durango High Country tour are second to none. The San Juan Mountain Range has been referred to as "America's Alps"..a comparison with which we think you will agree. Hermosa Tours' expert guides will take you on some of the area's most classic routes, as well as a few special home-cooked secrets that surprise even Durango veterans.
Our base camp for this tour will be Silverpick Lodge. Tucked away in a quiet mountain setting, this village of private condo retreats features a flowing indoor/outdoor patio area complete with barbeques, a pool, and no fewer than three hot tubs. Each day after your ride we encourage you to grab a shower or soak in the hot tub before settling in next to the campfire! While you relax under the clear Rocky Mountain skies, let our guides fire up the BBQ for the night's meal as well as clean and professionally tune your bike in anticipation of the next day's adventure.
We'll roll out early each morning to get ahead of the unpredictable weather that so often moves in during summer afternoons in the high mountains. This one of the primary reasons we elect not to camp along the trail for this tour. We usher you a world class ride and help you unwind in the cushy comfort of Silverpick Lodge. "Ride hard and relax."

About The Operator:
Hermosa Bike Tours

Our concentration is providing a cycling vacation that includes the best riding in each area led by knowledgeable guides, excellent accommodations, delightful meals, transportation and an array of amenities that leave our guests relaxed and rejuvenated as well as thrilled.
Our tours deliver the best mountain biking destinations and their crown-jewel rides. The relaxing comfort of distinct handpicked accommodations and zero-hassle personalized white glove service. This is not a bike trip. This is your fantasy mountain bike vacation. Ride hard. Relax. Repeat. This is the experience we deliver.
Service and Comfort
For years the benchmark for guided mountain bike tours has been a day one meeting spot, point to point riding, a supported campsite each night and a final drop off back in town. Hermosa Tours offers something different. We pick you up at the airport and shuttle you to your arrival night lodging included in your cost. After each day's guided ride you'll return to a hot shower, some hot tub time, perhaps a massage, definitely a delightful meal and a warm bed. Finally, we THANK our guests with a dinner in town, a final night's lodging and a shuttle to the airport the next day...all included in your cost.
The Best Rides
Abandoning the camp-to-camp routes gives us (and more importantly you) the luxury of providing the best rides in each of our destinations. It also allows us a lot of flexibility. You finished your ride early today and want some more? No problem; let's load up and bite off a little more. Hermosa Tours has scouted our destinations for not only the "classics", but also the hidden gems that you simply will not find in any guidebook.
To many, "guided" evokes an image of someone holding your hand through a watered-down experience. That's not what we're about. We're not here to get in the way of, or dictate your experience. It's about your TIME. Your time is valuable to you. Don't waste it scouring outdated guidebooks, running two-car shuttles, standing in line at restaurants, searching for a campsite, renting cars or hoping for a good hotel. Step off the plane and worry about the coldness of your beer (we'll make sure it's cold) and if your camera is charged.
