The San Juan Mountains provide a variety of terrain perfect for riding. From the town of Telluride, find challenging trails that explore old mining roads and basins high above the box canyon. For longer, moderate trails, mountain bikers can link several former railroad tracks throughout the valley and to the west. When the snow melts, the Telluride Ski Resort transforms into a biking playground with plenty of trails that meander through aspen groves and lush meadows.

The free scenic gondola cabins are outfitted with bike racks in the summer. From San Sophia Station, access bike trails for both Telluride and Mountain Village.
Road riding is also popular along the scenic San Juan Skyway. The region offers technical and challenging routes for skilled road riders featuring many mountain passes and substantial elevation gains.
