Burro Pass is a steep trail. Be prepared. The route from Geyser Pass (named for an early settler, not an actual water spout) works upward to Burro Pass at about 11,150-ft. Along the way you'll ride jeep trails and singletrack, so expect that you might be pushing your bike a fair bit.

Access to Burro Pass trail is gained from Geyser Pass Road (off of La Sal Loop Road) also named after Al Geyser who grazed his cattle in the area in the 1880ʼs.
The trail up to Burro Pass begins just behind the pit toilets at the parking area. Take an immediate left to stay on the single track and avoid a longer double track option. If you miss the single track turnoff, make a left at the double track and youʼre right back on route. From either point, itʼs time to settle into an easy groove as itʼs a steep climb of 678ʼ in less than a mile up to Burro Pass.
Once at Burro Pass, strap on your pads and get ready to send it! Burro immediately dumps you into a damp-canopied alpine forest full of steep, tight-twisting switchbacks. The trail is littered with sharp rocks and slippery roots that transitions from lush green Pine Trees to a forest of white-barked Aspens dropping in to scenic view of Warner Lake.
