The mountain biking around Laramie, Wyoming is among the best you can find anywhere. Single-track trails leave right from town, and within a short drive’s time, you can access more miles of trails than any one person deserves. Before you hear from the locals about their favorite trails, I’ll briefly introduce the main areas for mountain biking around Laramie.
And now, let’s hear from a few Laramie locals about their favorite mountain biking trails:
Laramie’s Best Mountain Biking Trails
“My favorite trail to ride is the headquarters trail – the section on the way to the top of Browns Landing. There’s something about the forest in there and the way the trail moves through it that is always exciting to me.”
– Emily Siegel – Laramie Local
“The Stone Temple Circuit at Gowdy is an awesome trail to practice because there are great “alternates” and play areas to try out as your skills progress. Then at Happy Jack, I love Aspen because of the tight turns through the trees and it also received the most recent face-lift and that always improves the trail.”
– Lindsay Olson – Owner of Atmosphere Mountainworks
For the experienced cyclist, don't miss Laramie's premier cycling event each July, the Laramie Range Epic. Happening in late July, this circuit brings you through some of the best terrain in Wyoming.
