The Gunnison South Loop is a fun ride located in Southern Colorado.


This loop starts in Gunnison and explores the canyons South of the Gunnison River.  Part of this loop makes up the North end of the Silver Thread Scenic Byway, but the entire route provides terrific scenery and roads.


Between Seguache and Del Norte, the path crosses through a stretch of farmland, so depending on when you ride, you might see some crops growing.  While it is not a part of this loop, this stretch of the ride takes you near Great Sand Dunes National Park.
