The Steamboat Ramble travels through the Roosevelt and Routt National Forests, starting in Fort Collins and ending in Steamboat Springs CO. On the route, we’ll travel through stunning landscapes, grand vistas and desolate backdrops. We return to the town of Walden for the second night, and ultimately over Buffalo Pass on our way to Steamboat Springs.
The first night we camp in Red Feather Lakes after 72 miles and 8,135 feet of climbing for the day.
The second day is new from previous Rambles. We track more northernly on new territory which is as equally as stunning. This route adds 15 miles and an additional 1,500 feet to the classic route. For the second night we return to Walden. Day two is 96 miles and covers 9,015 feet of climbing.
We follow the classic route from Walden over Buffalo Pass into Steamboat Springs and our final camp at the KOA along the Yampa River. Day three is 50 miles and 5,024 feet of climbing.
