    Frisco CO Trip September

    Well we are all set for a vacation based out of Frisco Colorado for a week in September we can't wait any suggestions on roads to ride, places to eat,places to stop, or anything of interest would be great! We will be two up on our 1200 GS Adventure and will be in no hurry to go anywhere! Any advice would be appreciated! We are hoping for Fall colors also! We have done southwest Colorado many times but never this area, thanks!

    that's good for off-raod stuff.
    for paved routes, buy Steve Farson's book on riding Colorado. There is none better. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...%2C%20colorado
    From Frisco, you're not far from Guanella Pass, Independence Pass, McClure Pass (133), and the exquisite Black Canyon of the Gunnison (92).

    Have fun!

    If around Granby the Brickhouse 40 is a great , though a bit upscale place to eat.

    Look at the small roads, several run E-W on the eastern slope between Denver and fort Collins.

    Also some nice small roads S and W of Steamboat, that get you off 40.

    And as advised, get Steve Farsons book, and buy a Butler map both excellent resources. Lots off small great rides like Guanella that keep you out of traffic and offer great riding and views.

    Guanella is great. Don't miss the Black Canyon if you have never been there.

    A great place to stop and visit is the Grand Lake Lodge, located at the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. They have a buffet breakfast that is fantastic and the view looking out to Grand Lake is very nice.

    The lodge was closed for a few years, has undergone a restoration/remodel and is open again.
