Fat Bike In Telluride
Colorado › Telluride Gravity Works
Added by Christin Healey
The perfect break from skiing while still staying active to take in the gorgeous surroundings of Telluride, CO. Ride out to Bridal Veil Falls, take the 4.25 mile River Valley Trail with the San Juan Mountains in the background and the San Miguel River running parallel to the trail, or do both for an entire day of adventure.
There are great fat bike trails leaving directly from the town of Telluride, CO with picture-perfect views of the San Juan Mountains. You can leave directly from where the main gondola takes off and go towards Bridal Veil, to the Valley Floor, or combine both for a perfect day of adventure. If you don't have a fat bike handy, you can rent from either Boot Doctors or Telluride Gravity Works. They can also help you with cycling tips and exact routes as there are a few options, and recommendations for breweries to hit during or after your trips. If you can, go in the morning when the snow hasn't melted and the biking will be easier.
There are established fat biking trails on the valley floor just west of the town of Telluride. If you are in Telluride, you can take the San Miguel River Trail, which runs through the town along the river, heading west until you connect with the valley floor trail system. If you are headed into Telluride on highway 145 from the east, there is very limited parking at the Shell Station right before you enter the town, and you can access the trail from directly behind the gas station. There is a mixture of groomed trails for cross country skiing and biking, just be sure to stay on the trails specifically marked for biking. The valley floor just to the west of Telluride is the perfect place for beginner fat bikers with magnificent views of the San Juan Mountains and the San Miguel River.
