Local Info

Salida is a bike town through and through. To compliment the cruisers, bike lanes and sharrows, this town in southern Colorado also has some seriously sweet singletrack.

Often known for its high country Monarch Crest - IMBA Epic ride, Salida has some great riding in the Arkansas Hills and Methodist Mountain trail systems. Some good choices right from town: S Mountain Quick Tour or North Backbone to Cottonwood.

Thai/Vietnamese: Little Cambodia
Coffee, Baked Goods and Killer Food: Sweetie's

Visiting Tips

The trails in the Arkansas Hills and Methodist Mountain trail systems are ride-able almost year round.

Monarch Crest and other high country trails are usually snowed in until mid summer.
