Bike Gold Camp
Follow A Historic Railway Trail Through the Colorado Wilderness
Our Bike Gold Camp package offers an opportunity to combine the wilderness experience with a tour of an 1800s locomotive railway. This historic gold mining railway line takes you through the Cheyenne Canon area. Cutting through the rugged terrain of the trail, you will get to enjoy magnificent views of the area and even bike through 4 historic railroad tunnels blasted out 130 years ago.
This tour begins at the Pikes Peak Bike Tour shop from which your guide will shuttle you to the trailhead. You will be kitted out with high quality biking gear and provided with directions that are easy to follow. You can opt to bring along a backpack with snacks to enjoy during your descent back to the shop.
The gravel path, that was previously the railway track, is well suited for riders of any experience. It meanders around and through an astounding canyon, taking riders through stunning wild terrain. There are many spots you can stop to enjoy magnificent views of the landscape to take photos or have lunch.
Self-paced and self-guided, the tour allows guests to explore the wilderness at whatever speed they are comfortable with. Riders can take anywhere between 2-4 hours to complete their journey. Take yourself on an adventure ride filled with the beauty and remnants of a bygone era.
This tour is not on Pikes Peak.
