Single track, it’s a magical word for mountain bikers. A word meaning a trail approximately the width of the bicycle, usually smooth and flowing. It keeps the rider as close to nature on either side while providing exhilarating twists and turns. Crested Butte has some of the greatest single tack in the country. When you ride here, it wont take long to realize how perfectly the trails seem to wrap themselves around the mountains. It’s as if the trails and mountains were impossibly made at the exact same moment in time. In fact, most local riders believe that true single track mountain biking began here.
