Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route

The Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route is a scenic ride across the state of Colorado, beginning in Four Corners and finishing at the Wyoming Border. The route has been created specifically for dual-sport and adventure motorcyclists who are interested in exploring Colorado’s majestic high-mountain ranges and historic mining country.

This 675-mile south-to-north route utilizes many remote and high-elevation dirt roads and leads riders through a number of iconic locations including Telluride, San Juan Mountains, Continental Divide, Collegiate Range, Northern Rocky Mountains and historic Leadville, along the Colorado River.

The COBDR feature-length documentary DVD produced by Noren Films and the accompaniying Butler Motorcycle Map were released in 2013.  Free GPS tracks of the route are available for download by following the 'Download GPS Tracks' link on the right.

“I’m really excited to release the latest installment in the Backcountry Discovery Route series, the COBDR. It was a wonderful motorcycle expedition and I think we’ve created a classic adventure ride. Viewers of the film will get a taste of what awaits them in Colorado – spectacular scenery, historic mining towns and exhilarating adventure riding on what is arguably one of the best rides in the country.“ – Sterling Noren, Producer, Noren Films

The expedition team included Backcountry Discovery Route board members named above, as well as journalist Tony Huegel, photographer Jonathan Beck and KLIM’s Jayson Wickencamp.
