Colorado Mountain Biking Opportunities: Salida Mountain
The Salida Mountain Trail System provides a true backyard to backcountry experience. These are the closest trails to downtown Salida and remain snow-free for the majority of the winter season, providing year round riding experiences. The trail system is a stacked loop design, with the more challenging trails higher in altitude and farther out from the trailheads. The trail system provides stunning views of the Continental Divide/Saguache Range and the Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges. The Salida Mountain Trails volunteer organization has partnered with the BLM and the city of Salida to build and rehabilitate this stacked system of environmentally sustainable trails.
One of the Bureau of Land Management's "Backyard to Backcountry" treasures, information on the Salida Mountain Trail System was developed between IMBA and the Royal Gorge BLM Field Office in Canon City, CO to provide world-class riding experiences. IMBA's data on the trail includes elevations, ratings, current conditions, photos, and comments.
