Two-wheeled travel lets you see the sights at your own pace, and the altitude kicks in a challenge.
Summer Mountain Biking
Test out mountain singletrack at Timberline Trails, the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center, or the Colorado Trail. Ride the dirt roads in Leadville’s East Side Mining District to see abandoned mines and jaw-dropping views of the Sawatch Range. Test out the new trails at Turquoise Lake. Find maps of mountain bike trails!
Summer Road Biking
For a Leadville classic, ride the famous Mineral Belt Trail, a 12-mile paved loop around town with stunning views of old mines and the Sawatch range. Ride the roads around glimmering Turquoise Lake or, for an extra challenge, up the switchbacks to Independence, Fremont, or Tennessee passes along the Top of the Rockies Scenic Byway.
Winter Fat Biking
With nearly 100 miles of groomed trails and plenty of sunny days, Leadville winters are made for fat biking fun.
Choose the Mineral Belt Trail or the East Side Mining District or for above-treeline views of the surrounding mountain ranges. These groomers wind past mining structures and snowy hillsides, all under a deep blue winter sky.
For forested scenery, loop ice-covered Turquoise Lake, check out the new trails at Turquoise Lake, or curve through the pines at Timberline Trails, both groomed regularly. Or explore a 15-mile groomed network at the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center, featuring rolling, wooded trails or winter-white meadows.
For extra fun, mark your calendar for the Leadville Winter Mountain Bike Race Series! Join this fun self-timed ride and support the local trails you love! Races take place through April. See our event calendar!
