It's the variety here that makes this route so great. I suggest starting in Hotchkiss so you're on the canyon side and easier to view down. One rides from fertile farmland/pasture to close-up forests of conifers, mountain mahogany, and aspen to sheer cliff views down into the dark igneous rock of the Black Canyon. The ten miles along the canyon are not for beginners due to the intimidation factor.
