The Abajo Mountains Challenge is a 43.2-mile loop that begins with a long mountain climb and descent and concludes with a series of rolling hills and long, false flats. With the exception of a few city streets in Monticello, the entire ride is on national forest roads and state highways; thus, the pavement is generally smooth. The elevation varies from 5,991 feet near Church Rock, well north of Monticello, to 8,843 feet high in the Abajos—be prepared for some thin air. Also, be aware of the potential for wintry weather between November and March.
