Excellent trails kept in great shape. Easy to find as most are marked and mapped. Huge variety. All trails can be ridden from the towns of Fraser or Winter Park.

too many to choose from!

Fraser is the most overrated riding. The ski area gained legal rights the "Mountain Biking Capital USA." The area also claims 600 miles of maintained trails between Winter Park and Fraser. Including wide dirt roads, which I do not view as trails myself, there is 178 miles of "maintained trail." I don't know where the other 422 miles is located. Take out a map, do the numbers yourself. Don't come here, you'll feel scammed. I travel, other places blow this out of the water. There are some good trails, but to think of it as a mountain bike capital is nothing more than the corporation scamming you the consumer.

Get on I-70 west, get off somewhere in Utah.

There is some good riding in the Fraser Valley but the locals are scarier than most inbreds from the bayou. And deffinitely do not bring your cat with you if Tabernash is your sleeping spot.

Stay in Denver and ride around Cheeseman

ok, there seems to be a bit of contention about the quality of riding in winter park. i would have to say this is beyond me. having ridden in virginia, west virginia, maryland, massachusetts, maine, vermont, and colorado, winter park ranks right up there. if you're too lazy to find the good trails, then just go plop a log down on the top of green mountain and call yourself a mountain biker.

when you take into consideration how close fraser is to denver and how uncrowded the trails are, how can you possibly say it's overrated? for those of you who haven't tried it, give it a shot next sunday. ask somebody how to get to wtb. you won't be disappointed.

Spent a week here looking for good riding, but as some other post have noted, there is very little single track. I was pretty dissappointed after all the hype about this place, and I became really frustrated when it became apparent that the retard who wrote the local guide book had no clue that "singletrack" literally means a trail that is one single track, not an old road that is closed to trucks. I think I can recall a ride or two that didn't totally suck... but the good stuff was far and few between.

Customer Service

Avoid the whole doubletrack infested place.

I really feel pity for those that have come to Winter Park and haven't enjoyed the singletrack. Few & far between? Hell, they must not have ridden the same Winter Park that I'm used to. There's several places with singletrack so tight your bars will hit on both sides. Granted, if you come from all the way from the great white north, you would be a fool if you rode here without asking locals for their recommendations. If you explore beyond the end of your nose, there's more singletrack than you could explore in a weekend.

Customer Service

too many places to note

A huge variety of trails. Something for everyone. Free maps are available at the Visitors Center. Shops are friendly and helpful.
In regards to negative post on this site. There are many miles of single track. Mountain Bike Capital USA is owned by the Chamber of Commerce not the Ski Area.
Trails are in great shape and all can be ridden from town..leave the car at home.
If someone had a poor experience here they just didn't just never got out in the woods.

Customer Service

Too many to choose from...suggest Tipperary creek, Upper Elk Creek and don't miss the Flume Trail.

This place rocks. Tell all your friends in Denver that they must come and ride in the Fraser Valley. Come tomorrow since there is no snow we can all ride together because I love to ride with beginners that I don't know.

Customer Service

Just look me up in the phone book and give me a call. I will drive you there myself. Or email me and I might even pick you up in Denver.

Too many to count. Like I said above...just email me and I will give you the biggest scoop of your life. Look me up in the phone book or just show up on my doorstep...I don't care. Hey I will even loan you my bike if you don't have one. Can't we all just ride along side one another?

Get on highway 40, drive north, check out Craig. It's not a bunch of hipe like Winter Park. (Wanker Park). Plain and simple. The riding is way overated. Sure, come here and suck some dirt bikers gas fumes. Give me a break.

Customer Service

I ride every day not once a week like weaklings who read this site.
