Mountain Biking in Colorado's Hartman Rocks

Added by Dave Kozlowski

Just south of Gunnison, CO—a great spot for locals and visitors. Good for biking, climbing, hiking, cross country skiing, and running. 6,000 acres of BLM land. 60 miles of trails for every skill level.

Drive four miles south of Gunnison, Colorado and you'll find Hartman Rocks. Meet up with your friend at the parking lot at the base and head out with your bikes onto Jack's Trail, a singletrack trail that takes you onto the main routes through BLM land.

Kiosks throughout Hartman Rocks have maps where you can check where you are.

Hartman Rocks is a great day spot, but also a really fun place to camp during the warmer months.

Nice Place to Hang out

There are so many campsites and activities to choose from making this a great place to stop by for a night or two. There are ample mountain biking and running trails as well as a few places to climb and rock crawl.

Know where you're going!

Whether you're mountain biking, hiking, or trail running, it's important to know where you are in Hartman Rocks. My 45 minute run turned into a 3+ hour run because I got disoriented in the back trails. Still a great place to explore in the Gunnison Valley!
