Aug 25: Million Dollar (CO) Hwy Loop, Fall Ride Plans, Challenge Update!
This week we wanted to highlight another one of our loops that features a popular road, the Million Dollar Highway.
The Million Dollar Highway Loop is an amazing ride in Southwest Colorado. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. So, use caution and enjoy the magnificent scenery. The origin of the name Million Dollar Highway is disputed. There are several legends, though, including that it cost a million dollars a mile to build it, and that its fill dirt contains a million dollars in gold ore.
The first time you drive it, it can be a real breath taker. There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. This road is famous for its stunning view and lack of guard rails.
