If you live in the Denver metro area and are a part of the mountain biking community, here are some of our favorite trails near you ranging from easy to hard, these trails include bike parks, technical trails, and just some fun trails to ride with your friends.
Starting with the park category one of the most popular parks and well known is Valmont bike park with features ranging from XL to XS perfect for any level of riding. Valmont is open from 5 am to 11 pm daily, this depends on the condition of the weather. Valmont is located at 3160 Airport Rd, Boulder, CO 80301. Some of the types of riding include trails, plus jumps, stairs, and slalom Slopestyle. Perfect for all ages.
If you’re the type of person who’s in for a little more technical rides you will like this place. This is Doctor Park in Crested Butte. This place is well known for the trail, The 401. The 401 trail is one of the best trails in our State. While this trail has gorgeous views and some great long-distance views this trail offers some fast speed single track. This trail has roots, berms, and some rocks yet not big enough to create a rock garden. You have to climb a little but it’s worth it.
If you’re looking for a fun trail to ride with your friends this is the place, this is the place. With multiple trails, a few double tracks perfect for riding with your friends, and lots of single tracks. These trails are located at White Ranch Park.
If you love mountain biking these trails will be your thing.
