Klondike Bluffs Area Trails

Klondike Bluffs Area Trail

Klondike Bluffs has long been a popular mountain biking area. All of the trails are also open to hikers. The area offers exceptional views into Arches National Park and unique paleontological and mining history.

In 2011 the BLM and Grand County Trail Mix began construction of 12 new singletrack trails in the Klondike area. While the excellent views available at the top of the bluffs were always accessible from the Klondike 4x4 trail, the new singletrack has dramatically increased the quality of the riding. The new trails total 32.9 miles and bring the total trail mileage in that area to approximately 50 miles. Several new trails are also planned. All of the trails are open to travel both ways, but some are more fun going downhill and are signed as such. There are maps and signs at every junction in the system. Riders should bring their own maps for navigation. Maps are available as printouts off of this site or for purchase on waterproof paper at all local bike shops.
