motorcycle rider driving to the mountain | 5 Best Motorcycle Rides in ColoradoAs an avid motorcycle rider will tell you, few things on this earth rival the feeling of freedom and power that comes from cruising down a spectacularly beautiful road on a bike. Colorado is the proud home of some of the most scenic rides in North America. With breathtaking views lining wonderfully curvy highways, it’s a motorcyclist’s dream come true. 

Home to 26 Scenic and Historic Byways, Colorado has become a popular touring destination for motorcycle riders from all over the country. Several companies even offer complete rental packages, including a motorcycle and all the safety gear. These packages are an ideal option for those traveling long distances to experience the beauty Colorado has to offer. 

With so many different routes to choose from, where do you start when planning to explore Colorado on two wheels? Here are the 5 best motorcycle rides in Colorado:

Mount Evans Scenic Byway

At 14,130 feet above sea level, Mount Evans Road is the highest paved road in North America. Ideal for a spring and summer ride, some portions of this road are closed during the winter months. Beginning in Idaho Springs, Colorado, a historic mining town, head south on Highway 103. Mount Evans Road starts at the junction of Highway 5 and will take you on beautiful a 56-mile round trip through groves of pine trees, valleys formed by glaciers, and rocky peaks. Ride with caution, as bighorn sheep and mountain goats frequent the landscape, and some switchbacks along the route don’t have guardrails.  

Santa Fe Trail

A relatively easy, although longer ride, the 184 miles (one way) along the historic byway will take you from the city of Trinidad, Colorado, past a reconstructed trading post at Bent’s Old Fort National Historic Site, to Lamar. Traveling through the Comanche National Grassland, there are specific points along the way where the ruts from original pioneers wagons from the 1800s are still visible. 

San Juan Skyway

A 236-mile loop, this route travels through several mountain passes, each over an elevation of 11,000 feet. Passing through the towns of Cortez, Telluride, Placerville, Ridgway, Ouray, Silverton and Durango, this six-hour trip is best done as a full day ride. With multiple stunning views of the Rocky Mountains along the way, riders will need plenty of extra time for taking pictures. 

Unaweep-Tabeguache Scenic and Historic Byway

Follow the Dolores and San Miguel rivers on a 133 mile (one way) ride through a flat-top canyon. The town of Uravan comes up midway through the ride, which brings some World War II history along with it. The uranium for the country’s first atomic bombs was mined near here. 

Trail Ridge Road Scenic Byway

Traveling from Estes Park to Grand Lake, this 48-mile trip has the honor of being the highest paved road within the United States that doesn’t end at a dead-end. The route passes through the tundra, with the stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountains along the way. Wildlife such as bighorn sheep and elk are commonly seen grazing near the roadside.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
