Rustlers Ridge

Overview

Rustlers Ridge is a fantastic flow trail in Steamboat Bike Park. Rated as an intermediate gravity trail, this route will give you an experience of a nonstop roller coaster, only you can control the brakes.

A great and wild route for any rider, even with those who haven't yet developed many skills. Either fast or slow bikers can ride this one. There are some sections where you'll feel like you're literally flying!

Terrain

A smooth trail with much vertical drop and almost no gap. There are tons of fun tabletop jumps down the entire trail, and some fast berms as well.

Access

Access is either via mountain bike trails from the ski area base or the gondola.

Food and drink

Stoker Bar & Restaurant and Hazie’s near the access point are great places with tasty food and good service either pre or post ride.

More details

Rustlers Ridge begins on the south side of Thunderhead gondola. When you drop into a large exposed berm, get ready to ride a rowdy section instantly. Then fall quickly through some more berms and rollers.

The route offers flowing trail and berms on shallower terrain, giving you some short breaks to enjoy the views of Steamboat Valley.

At the middle section, you'll move to a huge sweeping turn and ride through aspen groves. The trail then intersects Valley View. Below that, it passes an intersection with Rustlers Ridge Connector. The rest of the trail will offer a relentless series of deep berms and fast portions. Enjoy and burn your legs and arms.
