Google Maps Link to Sargents, Colorado:
Denver & Rio Grande Railroad watertank on Marshall Pass from the 1900's in Sargents, Colorado. When the D&RG
arrived in Sargents in July 1881 in was the end of the track and 1,500 men operated out of 20 grading camps nearby
laying railroad ties.
Sargents, early 1880's. Of the first 14 building erected in Sargents, eight were saloons, and they did a booming business.
The 2 Day Rocky Mountain Singletrack trail ride will offer you the opportunity to
ride your motorcycle in it’s intended environment on epic loops that have been scouted,
laid out and tracked with options for 80, 100, or 140 miles a day.
The trails near Sargents are rocky, high-mountain singletracks with a few
trails running above timberline. Riders should be comfortable riding steep uphill
and downhill rocky sections with trees spaced at handlebar width.
The mining encampment originally known as Quartzville was later be renamed to Pitkin in honor of the
Colorado governor. Pitkin got its post office in 1879, and by 1880 the population was over 1000. The next
summer, it was estimated 4000 people called Pitkin home. Much of Pitkin was destroyedby fire in 1898
and again in 1903. Pitkin survived by shifting its economy to lumber for the coal mines, but this ended
in the 1950s. Despite the fires, the town is full of historic structures and well worth the visit.
We'll have a catered lunch at the Silver Plume General Store in Pitkin on the Rocky Mountain
