Crested Butte is one of the world’s most revered mountain biking destinations, with a long history dating back to the 1970’s. From high alpine singletrack to the high desert riding of Hartman’s Rocks in Gunnison, Crested Butte offers everything a rider could want. Crested Butte Mountain Resort has been working hard to add more downhilling trails as well, if uphill just isn’t your thing. If you’re a first timer, many of the local shops rent bikes as well. I have been an avid mountain biker since 1986 and would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about mountain biking in the Gunnison Valley. Some of the best rides in the area include the famous 401 trail, Strand hill, Doctor’s Park, and 409 and a half. For a huge list of trails in the area, click HERE.
