Freeride and Gravity Biking

Outside of the Steamboat Bike Park, you will find two riding areas that have downhill-only and bike-specific trails to descend near town.  The first is NPR on Emerald Mountain, which extends from the Quarry area on Emerald all the way to the base of Howelsen Hill.  The second is Spring Roll, which takes off from Dry Lake on Buffalo Pass and ends at the Spring Creek Trailhead. Purpose-built trails like this reduce user conflict and improve the trail experience for everyone, not just mountain bikers!

For BMX riders and jump enthusiasts, the Bear River Bike Park serves up medium to expert jump lines along with a honeycomb pump track. Built in 2013 and funded by IMBA, Bell Helmets, Routt County Riders and the City of Steamboat Springs, the park features two pump-track loops with everything from smooth, kid-friendly berms to big air for expert riders. Kids can also get into the action with progressive terrain, from a small pump track to a gradually building lineup of berms and jumps.
