Gunnison, Colorado- Colorado Mountain Biking
This week we take you to Gunnison Colorado. While much larger, Gunnison lives quietly in the shadow of its world famous neighbor, Crested Butte.
Located just a half hour away, Gunnison offers a much longer ride season (sometimes year-round) because of it's lower elevation and desert terrain.
While there are plenty of places to ride in the Gunnison area, Hartman's Rocks (picture above) is the ideal place to both explore & ride great singletrack. Whether your riding the "Rage in the Sage" course loop, or any of the other trails networked throughout this area, you'll find everything from highspeed "luge" style riding to rocky technical sections.
To get here, you can either ride or drive from town. The main enterance is about three miles due south of town. A good map is available at local bike shops including the Tune Up Ski & Bike Shop (970) 641-0285. For more information be sure to check out the MBR Crested Butte Mecca section.
