Caravan Information 2015 – Colorado

The Colorado caravan is made possible by The BMW CCA – Rocky Mountain Chapter.

With only two weeks until the start of Drive 4 Corners, the official schedule and route map for the Colorado caravan has been put together and is ready for distribution! All participants are encouraged to attend as the individual caravans from UT, CO, TX, NM, and AZ officially kick off Drive 4 Corners 2015. Be sure to bring your camera, we will have a large group, which we will actually split into two separate driving groups, each with 20+ cars! See below for route and schedule information for the group drive.

The route combines scenic highway driving with an engaging twisty run through the canyon adjacent to Cañon City (there’s a reason for the name!). The end of Texas Creek and the adjacent canyon road lead us to our final meeting point, Salida, CO. This will be our main fuel point and bathroom stop. It will also serve as a great location for anybody heading south from Denver or the mountains along 285 to join up with us the group. Departure time from Salida will be 1:30pm (sharp) with the last ~2.5hour leg of the trip to go. Things open up a bit with some scenic views as we drive past The Great Sand Dunes, until we get near Del Norte and merge onto US-160. From here out, no more turn offs are required, and it’s an excellent drive up and back down the Continental Divide to Pagosa Springs. This was voted as the consensus #1 route to get to Pagosa Springs by the Drive 4 Corners Team.
