Crested Butte is truly a mecca of mountain biking, and according to some it’s where it all began. The action dates back to the 1970's and it's been at the forefront of the sport ever since. Today Crested Butte remains atop every pedal head's bucket list. With hundreds of kilometres of trails - almost all accessible from town - there’s enough here to keep even the most avid mountain biker busy for weeks. Some of the more famous trails are the 401 Trail, Doctor Park, The Dyke, and Strand Hill.
Crested Butte has two great elements that make it so unique: first is the town itself. One of the last true remaining “locals” towns in Colorado, Crested Butte exudes character and personality from the moment you pull up to the 4-way stop. There are no traffic lights and you’ll typically see more bikes than cars. Second, the town sits at the intersection of several mountain valleys, which allows you to link trails together very easily. By doing this, you can do a simple 10-km ride from downtown, or you can link together multiple trails to create an all-day 50-km epic ride.
