The Lost Canyon Loop Trail climbs from the town of Gunnison along a spur of the Colorado Trail. It traverses an undulating ridge to Signal Peak. From here, bikers can cut west for a shorter loop. The main route continues up a steep rocky section to a long mesa which provides relatively flat riding and good views for several miles. You will enter aspen groves near the upper end and pass through several gates. When you intersect a dirt road, turn left for a short jog to connect with the well maintained Lost Canyon Road and head back to Gunnison.

The Loop begins on the edge of Gunnison just behind the Western State College campus. It proceeds about 10 miles to the northeast and then loops back to Gunnison. Ample parking is available near the trailhead and a set of stairs enables you to cross the fence to access the trail.
