An IMBA Chapter


To be able to ride a new legitimate trail is a testament to a significant amount of due diligence, planning, approvals, and labor.

These combined efforts and milestones are a testament of the work that RCR has committed to and achieved through dedication in serving our community.

I’d been hearing about RCR’s work on Buffalo Pass for years now, and upon finally getting a chance to ride there, I understand why. Climbing perfectly graded single track on Flash of Gold through aspens and meadows was an ideal warm-up, and then descending Grouse created an ideal day on the bike. Taking a stunning, rocky ridgeline like that and making it fun for expert riders is no small feat. It was then a treat to preview the new Spring Creek directional trail as a cool down rip, a trail built for pure fun.

The trails that have been built [in Steamboat] are excellent, first class! Being a horse back rider who normally rides 25 hours weekly on various trails, the newly established ones… Rotary, Flash of Gold, Beall (to name a few) are all well-built, safe and fun to ride on. All the bikers encountered have been courteous, friendly and more!

These trails are an asset to steamboat … offering more to locals but also to the countless visitors who come each year. Keep up the fine work!
