Mountain biking in Vail Valley, Colorado
Mountain biking in Vail Valley
The Vail Valley has long been one of America’s favorite recreation designations, and has been on a steady drive over the past few decades to create singletrack close to the area’s mountain communities. The valley is unique in that it encompasses the arid landscapes of Eagle, Avon and Edwards, and the lush aspen and evergreen forests of Beaver Creek and Vail. The riding season spans over eight months. All levels of trail experiences in Avon, Edwards, Eagle and Gypsum are accessible from town and paved bike paths. Big climbs, challenging descents, and incredible alpine landscapes can be found on Vail’s most quintessential rides (both lift-served and not). Regular free bus service, plenty of first-class bike shops and abundant food and lodging options mean the Vail Valley is about so much more than winter sports.
