Trail Description
About this trail
The best part about this shuttle ride is the fact that the ride up is free! Why go to Keystone or
Beaver Creek and pay for a lift ticket when you can go to Telluride and ride up the gondola for
free? The Ridge trails are super technical, and the Telluride trail is steeper but smoother.
Definitely a technical challenge, don't attempt unless you're fairly experienced.

Review: The telluride side of the gondola is all closed to biking due to too many injuries. Instead now theres an entire bike park open on the mountain village side (the other side) and it's awesome. Theres access to loads of downhill trails and some good moderate xc

Review: The Ridge Trail is closed but not because of too many injuries. It was closed as an agreement with the USFS to curb renegade trail construction. In exchange for keeping very few trails open to biking, this one was the sacrificial lamb.

Review: Awesome ride through the country side, and it's all downhill! Make sure you take a tube & CO2.
