Air up those tires and grab your helmet, because nothing says summer in Colorado like two wheels on a smooth section of singletrack. Check out these bike parks for the ultimate adventure. 

Keystone
Keystone Bike Park offers some of the country’s best lift-served downhill singletrack for riders of multiple skill levels. From mellow bridges and berms to rock gardens and rock drops, beginner and expert riders alike can experience the thrill of downhill on one of the park’s 34 trails, there’s something for everyone. 
 
Breck

Haul your bike up the Colorado SuperChair then ride down the twists and turns of the resort's breathtaking trails to enjoy the beauty the mountains have to offer. 
 
Vail
Zig-zagging the mountain’s winter slopes and webbing into a much larger trail network, Vail Mountain is an underrated summer bike destination with more than 40 miles of trails – ranging from singletrack winding through aspen groves to banked turns and technical descents. Take advantage of the more than 20 freeride bike trails accessible off of the resort’s gondola, with difficulty ranging from beginner to expert. In 2018, the Vail Valley was designated as a Silver Level International Mountain Bicycling Association Ride Center. 
 
Beaver Creek 
Enjoy a bike haul ride up Centennial Express Lift or experience the beauty and reward of biking to the top of Beaver Creek. Once at the top, miles of rolling single track await with breathtaking views and trails for every style and stage of rider. From village-to-village beginner trails to intermediate and more, Beaver Creek’s iconic winter trails transform into unforgettable summer bike trails.  
 
Crested Butte
Crested Butte Mountain Bike Park has a diverse network of 30-plus miles of trails, offering both lift-served downhill and cross country rides. The Red Lady Express Lift shuttles mountain bikers to mid-mountain where numerous singletrack trails can be accessed. Looking to build your skills? Take a lesson with one of Crested Butte’s professional bike guides. Our on-mountain network of trails connects to other legendary rides in and around Crested Butte that are all part of more than 750 miles of rideable singletrack in the Gunnison Valley. Other nearby must-rides include: 
  • Trail 401: A Crested Butte classic, 401 offers endless views of Colorado's Elk Mountains while winding its way around alpine lakes, through aspen groves and immersing riders in shoulder-high skunk cabbage. 
  • LupineOne of the valley’s newer singletrack developments and appropriately named for the abundance of Colorado’s state flower, Lupine is short and sweet, with fast and flowy downhill and moderate climbing.
