Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Park Tour - Go With a Legend

"Steve “Doom” Fassbinder is known for completing nearly impossible adventures, like biking and rafting 1,000 miles across Tajikistan. The guy has an uncanny ability to suffer—early in his career, he was a repeat 24-Hour mountain-bike-racing world champ. Since leaving the racing scene, Doom has made a name for himself by piecing together creative multi-day routes around the world that require mountain bikes, packrafts, and the occasional llama... The customized tours launch from Fassbinder’s 35-acre Scullbinder Ranch. One of the trips includes special access to nearby Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Park, 125,000 acres of protected lands adjacent to popular Mesa Verde National Park, with a fraction of the visitors. You’ll bikepack for three days through the park’s dusty canyons, fording the Mancos River to meet Wolf, a Ute Mountain Ute guide who’ll take you up wooden ladders into Native cliff dwellings. The tour finishes with a 40-mile gravel grind back to the ranch, hitting tiny downtown Mancos, where a craft beer on the outdoor patio at Mancos Brewing Company awaits. Because what’s a bike ride without a post-ride beer?" ~Outside Magazine, "27 Epic Trips You Should Start Planning for Now!"

Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Park Bikepacking Tour featured in The Radavist

Radavist, Outside Mag Feature FCG!

"I feel truly lucky to have been able to experience this place in the way I have the past two days. Most people either get shuttled on a massive bus into Mesa Verde NP or if they are lucky to get on a smaller tour through the Tribal Park. To have a personal guide for our hikes, and to be allowed to ride along the meandering Mancos River Valley on a bike is such a treat. We got to linger and spend as much time as we desired at the dwellings and spend our evening under the quiet of the stars and valley walls. As someone who used to work as a guide, I can truly say that what Steve and Lizzy have cooked up here is a truly unique experience in its scope and scenery, from their personal ranch to the exclusive access for bikepacking in the Ute Mountain Tribal Park." ~ Spencer Harding
