Gunnison is a college town with a western heritage and a mountain biking addiction. Many of the Gunnison Valley’s most serious mountain bikers live in Gunnison because it’s where our mountain biking season kicks off every year in the spring.

Gunnison Mountain Biking

Hartman Rocks is certainly the gem of Gunnison mountain biking trail system. The 44 miles of singletrack is about as densely packed as possible. Flow, tech, beginner, and advanced options will linger in your dreams after you return home. And it opens early in the spring and stays open late in the fall.

Cattlemen's Days, Colorado's oldest rodeo, Gunnison, COBut Gunnison offers so much more than the 44 miles at Hartman Rocks. Signal Peak has a few rides now and many more planned in the future. Beyond that, if you want to ride some big time downhills, you can head east to the Continental Divide. There you will find the likes of Monarch Crest and Agate Creek.

After tackling Hartman Rocks or a big ride off the Divide, few things sound better than pizza or a burger. You can get very good versions of both in Gunnison. Also steak, Nepalese food, barbecue, and a whole lot more.

Then head to the I Bar Ranch or the Gunnison Arts Center for music. Or, if you’re lucky enough to be here during Cattlemen’s Days, head to Colorado’s oldest rodeo and enjoy the show.
