One trip is all you need to become a lifelong fan of our vast trail system. Quoted as “the Country’s Best Mountain Bike Destination” by Outside Magazine in 2016, we consistently rank among the world’s best MTB trails thanks to rugged backdrops, abundance of singletrack trails, and favorable terrain attributes. With more than 750+ miles of community-built trails to choose from, we can safely say that we have something to offer any rider—regardless of experience. After your ride, our laid-back towns make for a relaxing place to refuel and wrap up your day.
Explore different routes, embrace local trail culture, and get ready for one truly unforgettable ride.
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.
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.
