Picket Wire Canyonlands takes you far away from Colorado's high country and delivers you nearly to Kansas. Roughly 80 miles from the state line, Picket Wire Canyonlands is oftentimes overlooked by many Coloradoans, but remains, most certainly, one of its treasures. The initial 500-foot drop into the canyon is steep and rock-laden- the only technically challenging section of the entire ride. The rest of the ride travels over a worn jeep road that has since been reclaimed by doubletrack. While passing outcroppings of blocky limestone engraved with Native American artwork, the route delivers you to the banks of the Purgatoire River and to North America's longest recorded set of pre-Cambrian dinosaur tracks. Terrain: Doubletrack and dirt road on desert terrain with sand and rocks
