Mt Reco Bike Ride


This is a popular route for ATV riders, and it just had to be a great mountain bike ride. I talked to some of the Freeride and Oakley crew that were hanging out at Retallack and they had mentioned that they were doing some riding off Reco. Christian from Oregon was hanging out in New Denver for the week and we met doing some paragliding the day before and it seemed like a bike ride was looking good. Sara generously drove us up to Retallack and we began our ride up Stetson Creek FSR and up over Reco Pass. A quick climb up Reco ( 8,200 ft ) provided some awesome views and then a solid 6,400 descent down to Cody along the old K&S Rail line then zipping down to Three Forks up to the Old Sandon Rd and descent down to New Denver. Phew.

Trevor, that is a huge amount of vertical! What's the ski potential off Rico?

Retallack Cat Skiing is skiing Reco Bowl from time to time. But it's more like 2,000 ft of vertical although they do a run down to the Highway which is supposed to be about 3,000 ft or so.

How about off the ridge to the south?
