This map was created by Absolute Bikes former staff member Andrew Mesesan to demystify the Monarch Crest Trail and the options for rides including the famous trail. The Monarch Crest is a section of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail between Monarch and Marshall Passes. The Colorado Trail joins near the middle of the section and they are combined to and past Marshall Pass. The Crest Trail is often combined with the Silver Creek Trail and Rainbow Trail for a 30 mile singletrack ride in the high country. That route is known locally as the Classic Crest Route. Many riders are unaware of the other options. Options are Descending Greens, Fooses (CT) or Agate Creek Trails from the Crest. A unique feature if this map is PhotoFlow. Tags on the map can be identified and described on the back of the map. When you are at some location on the map, there is a picture of that place to confirm your assumptions.
