Trail Description
About this trail
The Mountain View Trail runs for 6 miles from a junction with the Fish Creek Falls trail near Long Lake to Mount Werner and Steamboat Ski Resort.
True to its name, Mountain View provides gorgeous views of the mountains, and some of the best high-elevation mountain biking near Steamboat Springs! With much of the trail at over 10,000 feet, the views of the surrounding mountains and the valleys below them are fantastic to behold.
The singletrack itself is a joy to ride, with good, dark dirt, and plenty of rocks to keep you on your toes!
Mountain View is often worked into a shuttle run from Rabbit Ears. To do this shuttle (see GPS Map), get a ride up to Dumont Lake near Rabbit Ears Peak. Start the ride by heading north from there on the Continental Divide Trail/Wyoming Trail #1101. Ride the CDT for about 8 miles, and turn left onto the Fish Creek Falls trail. Loop around Long Lake, and then take a left onto Mountain View. Ride the Mountain View trail for 6 miles to the resort, and then there are a myriad of options to descend. I descended on Pete's Wicked Trail, then dropped into Moonlight, and finally picked up the Valley View trail, which leads all the way to the base of the mountain. From the base, pick up the bike path which drops down to Highway 40, and the other side of 40 pick up the Yampa River paved greenway trail, which leads all the way back into Steamboat Springs.
