Skip to content Biking Two Wheels Is The Best Way To Take In The Beauty
Telluride Bike Park is a completely unique lift-served experience with a variety of interconnected trails (freeride, technical and cross-country), camps and guides for all abilities from beginners and never-evers to experts.
Biking around Mountain Village is an outdoor marvel, bar none. For that reason, our destination wins more and more accolades every year for its varied terrain and exquisite backdrop. In terms of access, most of our trails may be reached via the gondola at San Sophia Station, and every cabin comes equipped with bike racks. If you need to rent or purchase a bike or bike equipment, visit one of our
local retail sports shops in Mountain Village Center. Biking Safety
