We all know that Chaffee County is home to some of the best rafting in the country, but it also has some of the best mountain biking in Colorado. Here at DVK we love the river but we also enjoy countless other outdoor activities. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite local mountain biking trails. So get those bikes tuned up and fresh tires put on because you will not want to miss out on these.
1. The Salida Mountain Trails
The best after work or short loop around. The Salida Mountain Bike Trails is a trail system that has something for everyone. From easy beginner trails to technical double black diamond trails the network is perfect for any rider. You can put together a small hour ride to a couple hour ride depending on what routes you take. The trails are very easy to navigate with easy to find maps and signs. Your ride finishes at the Main Street Bridge and your ready to grab some grub and a beer at one of the many excellent downtown restaurants. And if you play your cards right you can also catch an amazing sunset against the collegiate peaks.
