Southwest Colorado Canyons Alliance collaborates with Bureau of Land Management to engage the public through education, outreach, and stewardship for the use and enjoyment of the natural and cultural landscape of Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and nearby public lands.

Southwest Colorado Canyons Alliance and Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway present the 2021 Ride of the Ancients! This super bicycle challenge will begin and end in the beautiful mountain town of Dolores, Colorado. Join us on June 26 for the festivities that include, not only the bike ride but also vendors, a family bike parade, kid-friendly activities, and music at the Dolores River Brewery! Come and celebrate summer and the opening of the NEW Kokopelli Bike and Board!
