Cottonwood Pass

Cottonwood Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Cottonwood is a top-notch climb without top-notch hype. An up-and-back on the Buena Vista side of the pass should fill you with enough endorphins for a few weeks.

At some point in your journey through the bike culture, you might have heard some guys bikesplaining about the relative difficulty of climbs in Colorado versus those in Europe. Quite often I hear occasional soapboxing about Colorado climbs being so much easier. I doubt any of these dudes have attempted Cottonwood or Independence, the big-and-tall climbs around here, or their proclamations would be less absolute."
