Near Banff and Mount Assiniboine the trails are restricted to hiking, some horses and some bicycling. No motorcycles for sure! You might have more luck to the south and west, around Elkford and Windermere. Here's a photo on Highway 93:

Excellent, excellent write up! I am seriously considering ditching all my other ride plan ideas this summer and doing the Colorado-only section of this trip!

By the way, it is the Cumbers & Toltec Scenic RR you rode over on the Colorado/New Mexico state line.

You rule. I love it! I love that API too.

Downloaded your tracks and did a 60 mile fragment of the Continental Divide ride between Helena and Lincoln Montana (your date 17-Jul-05) on our 2UP tour through the area. Couldn't have possibly seen so much or avoided a lot of backtracking had it not been for you tracks. Great stuff.

Beautiful country:

What's the general difficulty of The Continental Divide Trail from say I70 in Colorado up through Wyoming to the Idaho Border?

Are there really technical single track sections or is most/all of it all old road beds?

We'll be on TKC shod 640's.

We're leaving June 17 to spend a couple weeks prior to the Rally in Buena Vista and looking for some options.

Thanks.

Too Early??

Be aware that many sections of the designated route are closed to motorized vehicles until July 1. The primary route from just north of Steamboat Springs to the Wyoming line goes through one of the seasonal closure areas but the alternate route will keep you legal. The forests in WY, ID, and MT also have seasonal closures but you will have to check with the individual FS offices for specifics. We are waiting until after the BV Westfest to make our run from Steamboat to Canada so as to avoid the closures.

Hey guys,
I’m in need of a little help on this one. I can’t get this to load.

I’ve tried to open it with Map Source (with the update) and also Easy GPS.
I keep getting an “System Error line 0 position 0”

Any ideals how to open this?

Thanks for the help,
Kp

Just dinkin' around looking at stuff, ride reports, etc.

Very enjoyable. It strikes me that you make mention of the people you met along the route. One of the underrated aspects of our kind of travel, yes?

Great report, and makes me want to follow those same roads!

Thanks for sharing!

Unfortunately, that part of the CD trail is in National and Provincial parks, and motorized vehicles aren't allowed. Bicycles aren't even allowed on some parts, eg from Shark Mtn to Mt Assiniboine, and onto Sunshine Ski resort (just outside Banff). Incidently, to my knowledge, the CD trail isn't known as such in Canada, but is a series of trails, some marked, many not, that follow the Continental Divide from the border to the Willmore wilderness area north of Jasper/Hinton.
Sorry, someone answered it better, and sooner. Somehow I missed the other replys.
