The Evolution Bike Park was established at Crested Butte Mountain Resort in 2009. Since the beginning it has been designed to meet the needs of all riders; from cross-country aficionados, beginners on two wheels, and gravity experts. Evolution Bike Park is becoming one of the best in the state of Colorado. With 25 trails covering 30 miles of singletrack, the riding opportunities reflect the roots of mountain biking history here in Crested Butte.
Both lift served downhill trails and cross country rides connect to some of the legendary rides in and around Crested Butte. The landscape in the valley, and the views from the trails of Mt. Crested Butte are some of the most beautiful you’ll see on two wheels. Getting to ride in one of the birthplaces of mountain biking, with an impeccable backdrop, is an experience you won’t want to miss.
The Evolution Bike Park also offers services such as Scott demo bikes, bike guides for the bike park and lessons. There is also a bike wash in the base area, a tune station and a skills zone. Each year, the trail crew continues to evolve the bike park with more trails, new sections of trail and maintenance to offer great riding at the resort to compliment 750 miles of mountain biking that the Gunnison Valley has to offer.
