Veteran off-roader Brad Lovell and his crew annually organize Expedition Colorado. The idea behind the event is to get out and experience the Colorado (and Utah) backcountry as an adventure, not in a dusty trail ride with 50-plus vehicles. Do it on your time, grab a sleeping bag and cooler, explore hundreds of miles of great trails and witness the beauty this area has to offer. Respect nature, tread lightly and be good stewards of the land. Completing Expedition Colorado on your own or with a small group will be an unforgettable experience; make your plans now.
Expedition Colorado is not a race. There is no entry fee. The route is 645 miles long, and only 121 miles are paved. It’s not intended as a scenic byway; you must work hard and cover hundreds of miles. There may be adjustments to the route in the event of deep snow or flooding. No trails are rated for more than 35” tires and lockers. Don’t expect to be able to hop on course, hit a checkpoint and then take pavement to the next checkpoint. That’s not the point. You can, however, complete the course in segments over several weekends.
The current route starts near Grand Junction, Colo. and heads west to Green River, Utah before turning south and eventually passing through Moab, Utah. It then returns to Colorado and follows the Uncompahgre Plateau southeast winding through the San Juan mountains and ending in Lake City, Colo.
