Mountain Biking at A-Basin
Test your legs and lungs at our mountain
Self-powered mountain biking is permitted at Arapahoe Basin during our summer operating season. The 1.8 mile Argentine-North Fork Trail follows a winding, mostly single-track path along the lower mountain to Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain. The elevation gain is approximately 750 feet. Once you arrive at mid-mountain, you can choose to continue up to the summit via our primitive summer road for a leg-burning climb. You can access U.S.F.S. land and the Lenawee Trail via the summit of Arapahoe Basin.
In the future, Arapahoe Basin hopes to offer more options for mountain and cross-country cyclists during the summer. We will post updates here!
Road Biking near A-Basin
Arapahoe Basin is located on Loveland Pass, the finish for Stage 2 of the 2015 USA Pro Challenge cycling race. The category 1 climb up Loveland Pass is a must-do for visiting road cyclists, combining a winding 8-mile climb with an exhilarating downhill on the scenic Continental Divide. Loveland Pass is open to vehicles throughout the year, including tanker trucks, so use caution on this roadway. You can get to Loveland Pass from the Summit County bike path system and enjoy lunch at the Basin on your way back home!
