Railroads crisscrossed this entire area at the height of the gold rush, before the invention of cars and highways. Today those old railroad beds have been transformed into some of the most enjoyable mountain bike trails around. The Midland Trail is a classic rails to trail route linking several portions of purpose built singletrack that are perfect for the intermediate rider. Sometimes fast and flowy, sometimes twisty and chunky, always fun AND the views of the Collegiate Peaks cannot be beat!

Whether we start with a technical climbing section or from the more mellow railroad grade, we always ride the Midland Trail out and back. You know that that means?! Downhill finish! Plus, riding it out and back allows us to turn around at any point when the group gets tired.

As with all our group rides, we use at least two professional guides, one at the front and one at the back, so everyone can ride their own speed. The fast riders can race off with the guide in the front and the slower cyclists can ride at their own pace without feeling rushed. It’s a great situation for everyone.
