Steamboat Springs Riley Seebeck 1

Steamboat Springs, being in the Yampa Valley is a perfect place to escape life’s grind and access miles of fluid, flowy, and fun singletrack straight from town. Riding east of town puts you on a connector trail leading to the Continental Divide Trail which spans 3100 miles from the Mexico border to the south, all the way north to the Canadian border. You can turn this access into an epic ride that allows exploration of miles of backcountry trails and and then descend over 4,000 ft back to to town.

Camping is possible right next to most of the trailheads all over the Routt National Forest. There’s no better way to embrace a long ride than smelling the morning air straight from the tent and waking up to a warming sunrise. Making a breakfast full of eggs, bacon and coffee is a great way to fuel for the climb and the day of exploration ahead. 

Camping Steamboat

The trails surrounding Steamboat take you through granite rock tech, lush christmas tree patches with soft tacky soil, and steep open meadows with fun little rock features to send it off of. The terrain can be a beast of its own but the majority of the trails are consistent fun factories. Like tech? Check out the Fish Creek Falls Trail. An uphill and downhill traffic, bike legal trail known for gnarliest stuff in town. You’re faced with some crazy rock waterbars followed by endless amounts of chunder on steep, exposed spots. Mountain goating should be in your quiver of skills for this one.

You know you’re in a great place when the town slogan is “Work hard, Play harder”. One visit and you will a have a special place in your heart for The Boat. With exceptional accessibility and a beautiful mountain town, it’s easy to become spoiled here. The town is filled with people who do the same things you like to do. Everyone seems to greet you with a smile and always wants to know where you’re from, why you came to The Boat, what you do with your life, etc. The medium sized Steamboat feels like a small, cozy, mountain town as soon as you arrive. It is a unique town being in Colorado, where we have dispensaries, breweries and distilleries so you can enjoy all of your guilty pleasures.

The Barley

If you are considering a trip to the Colorado Rockies, Steamboat Springs deserves  a look. A dream vacation possibility would be to fly into Denver, first stop Salida, CO riding the legendary Monarch Crest Trail, then back north to Keystone Bike Park near Breckenridge, CO then head over to Trestle Bike Park for a day, then head north west wrap up your trip with a couple days in Steamboat Springs. The possibilities are endless!
