Mountain Biking Stratton Open Space / The Chutes

****   Add a review
#39 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#204 in the world

Trails in the open space are well marked and are classified for difficulty. The trails here go through the fields and up around two small reserviors. At the top of the open space is a trail called The Chutes. This trail is an out and back and climbs about 600 feet over a couple of miles to Gold Camp Road. Turn around at the top here for a fast and fun ride down. The trail is banked and built for speed. Be careful of other bikers or hikers coming up the trail. The Chutes, although short, is one of the best trails in town.
