IMBA Gold Level Mountain Biking: The Roaring Fork Valley reigns as one of America’s top mountain biking destinations and in early 2020, Aspen was declared a gold-level ride center by the International Mountain Biking Association. Soar through award-winning mountain bike trails in the height of picturesque fall colors from Snowmass to Aspen. Learn everything you need to know about Aspen's IMBA Gold Level status here. As an epicenter for cycling, Aspen bikers can also choose from the gently sloping Rio Grande Trail, a serene road ride up to the iconic Maroon Bells, a grueling ride up Independence Pass and more. Since fall in Aspen is still a bit of a secret, favorite trails and stretches are even less populated than summer.  For bicycle rentals and trail recommendations contact local experts at Aspen Velo or Bike Butlers.
