To avoid the hassle of transporting your bikes during vacation, we recommend renting a mountain bike in Vail. Venture Sports offers a complete collection of mountain bike rentals in Avon and Vail Village. They also offer guided bike rides with local experts if you are not comfortable hitting the trails on your own.
The most extensive collection of mountain biking trails is accessible from Vail Mountain. Many bikers take the Gondola One or Eagle’s Nest Gondolas to access the trails without biking up the mountain. You can also rent a bike at the ski resort to conveniently access the trails. Here are a few of the top tracks you can access from the gondolas:
If you are looking for longer rides away from the crowds of Vail mountain, there are several options for you! Bike over twelve miles of paths on the North Trail section and enjoy switchbacks, aspens, and wildflowers. The Meadow Mountain Loop offers similar views on a ten-mile trail with a more challenging climb. Speaking of challenges, if you are up for the ultimate challenge, then Son of a Buffeher is for you! This twenty-mile trail includes 3,000 feet of elevation gain and is not for the faint of heart!
