The Gunnison Valley is home to some of the best mountain biking trails in Colorado. With more than 800 miles of singletrack to choose from, you can stay here for a month and still not ride every trail. Gunnison Crested Butte offers a wide array of bike trails, from rocky desert rides in Gunnison to flowy alpine descents in Crested Butte. No matter where you ride, panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains surround you. If it’s time to plan your Colorado mountain biking vacation, start here!
Pit toilets are available at Hartman Rocks and a few trailheads around Crested Butte, but most trails do not have bathroom facilities. “Go before you go,” and learn how to properly dispose of waste if you have to answer the call of nature outdoors.
The seven principles of Leave No Trace guide us on how to behave in the outdoors. Abiding by the principles helps minimize human impacts on the land. To learn more about Leave No Trace principles specific to mountain biking, visit LNT.org.
If possible, plan your route to avoid riding on wet or muddy trails. If you do encounter snow or mud on the trail, ride through it rather than around it.
