Biking Information

Biking is a wonderful way to stay active and take in the gorgeous scenery our state has to offer. Colorado's public lands include many miles of biking trails, and there's something for everyone. Whether you're strapping your helmet on in preparation for an intense workout, a big adventure, or a relaxed family ride, our state park routes are the way to go. ​​​​​


It is also easy to plan a custom ride using the Colorado Trail Explorer​, COTREX, a trail map that aims to map every trail in the state of Colorado.​
