Mountain biking in Cheyenne

Cheyenne itself may not be a mecca for outdoor activities, but the immediate western area of Wyoming’s capital city is a different story. Just 30 minutes from the heart of Cheyenne, a rich playground awaits, to open its door to welcome nature lovers and avid outdoor adventurers. Of course, that includes you, bikers!

One of many scenic areas in the west of Cheyenne is the Curt Gowdy State Park - a small paradise for mountain biking in Wyoming. Boasting more than 35-miles of well-marked tracks, this spectacular trail network has recently earned the name “EPIC” designated by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA).   

In Curt Gowdy State Park, you can find everything that you’re looking for, for your next ride. From fast and flowy singletrack to rugged rock gardens, sharp climbs and descents…this trail network promises to give the most exhilarating ride of your mountain biking life!
