Overview

COPMOBA and the City of Montrose have partnered to create a mountain bike trail system on city-owned land at Cerro Summit.

Description

Mostly known as a sledding area in the winter, Cerro Summit Recreation Area is now an all-season facility. There are 4+ miles of singletrack that was completed in the summer of 2015

It features over an hour of quality riding if you do all of the trails backwards and forwards. Some nice quick downhills, surprising turns, and a few tech rock/boulder obstacles. It's a great place to bring beginning mountain bikers or youngsters.

History & Background

Cerro Summit has been owned by the City of Montrose for many years. Originally part of a water storage project for the Cimarron Ditch, a sledding hill was established in the 1990s. In 2013 the first mountain bike trails were built.
An old narrow guage railroad bed runs through the property, and one of the trails goes along it for a ways. If you look carefully you might see the remains of an old rope tow.

Good ride in some higher elevation. Reaching the summit from the bottom is well worth it. 5.5mi
