Prospect Loop is a local favorite mountain bike single track ride that starts at the Gondola Station San Sophia and with climbs and downhill sections throughout the ski area. The ride features great views from Sneffels Mountain Range and Wilson Peak to flower-filled meadows. The second climb brings you to the top-a-ten and Ute Park. The trail splits and you have two choices. Continue on the loop or to add a bit of fun downhill through the forest turn right (you can access the loop further down on the Sundance ski run). The ride concludes at the Mountain Market where you can take the Gondola back down to Telluride, or lengthen your ride by taking Jurassic Trail down to the Valley Floor!
Please note that this trail doesn't open to July 1st. Despite the trail being in physically good shape earlier, it traverses elk calving areas so it is not open until July.
