Colorado offers miles of trails over all types of terrain, from high-alpine descents to steep climbs out of desert canyons, to easy dirt road rambles through state parks, national forests, and grasslands. Veteran mountain biker and local cyclist Stephen Hlawaty outlines fifty of the best rides from Fort Collins to Durango and from Grand Junction to the Front Range, including a weeklong mountain bike adventure from Telluride to Moab, Utah.
View Grand Mesa and the Book Cliffs from the top of Mack Ridge; take a dip in the hot springs at Mount Princeton; or climb Belcher Hill at White Ranch. This guide will give you the inside track on everything from the best time of year to ride, to local events and attractions, and even where to get a cold drink and a bite to eat. Insider tidbits about each route’s historic background make this more than just a trail guide. Also included:
- comprehensive ride descriptions
- detailed shaded relief maps
- elevation profiles
- ratings for physical and technical difficulty
- tips on riding and trip preparation
Wherever you ride and whatever your skill level, let Mountain Biking Colorado be your guide to this mountain biking paradise.
