Mountain Biking


Summer Trail MapThere’s no better place to enjoy some quality time on a mountain bike than at C Lazy U dude ranch, which is nestled 8,000 feet above sea level in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Besides being great exercise, mountain biking is a thrilling activity, and one that is quite popular in our neck of the woods. Enjoy the adventure as you reach exciting speeds or slow down to take in the wilderness and wildlife on our trails, all while spending time with the ones you care about and biking through the pristine natural landscape together on your Colorado summer vacation.

If you already know your way around a mountain bike, feel free to take off on a mountain bike across the trails that run throughout our ranch (all 8500 acres!) Take an early morning ride to start your day off right, or wind down with an evening mountain bike ride on your own. If you need a mountain biking refresher – or have never biked before – sign up in the Outfitter’s Cabin for a guided tour with our avid mountain biking guides. Our dude ranch guides are passionate about mountain biking, and some have even ridden professionally. We provide mountain biking opportunities for all ages and skill levels.

You can even leave your favorite bike at home when you plan your family vacation in Colorado because we have everything you need for a fun and safe adventure, from the bike itself to all the essential safety gear. For those who have never biked before, our staff is passionate about teaching you the basics, including what safety gear to wear and the proper riding practices to follow. We can also teach more advanced methods if you spend enough time at C Lazy U ranch to perfect your mountain biking technique. Similar to horseback riding – but delivering a completely different experience – mountain biking is the best way to experience the breathtaking scenery of C Lazy U guest ranch in Colorado.

Unguided riding is available 7-9 a.m. and 5-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and guided rides are offered 3-4:30 pm. Thursdays and 10-11:30 a.m. Saturdays. All necessary equipment for on-ranch activities is provided for your convenience.
