Inspirato’s rich collection of mountain destinations isn’t just an asset in the winter—it provides some of the best access to outdoor recreation in the summer months, too. Hit the trails in some of the best places for mountain biking in the West, all with nearby Inspirato accommodations.

Lake Tahoe, Nevada and California

Whether you stay with us in California or Nevada, the Lake Tahoe mountain bike experience is great from any side of the lake, drawing in those seeking steep and advanced thrills or relaxed pedaling around the basin. Hop on the classic Tahoe Rim Trail, a 165-mile loop circling above Lake Tahoe that offers select segments with bike access as it shares a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail. Over on the Nevada side, the Tahoe Flume trail is a moderate 14-mile trail with views of Lake Tahoe’s eastern shore, often photographed for its picturesque beauty.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Stay with Inspirato in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole, hugged by the Gros Ventre and Teton mountain ranges. Enjoy easy access to over 115 miles of mountain bike trails as you embark on a day-long, challenging ride or cruise through quick and easy scenic routes soaking in the valley’s sun. Many trails start right in Jackson’s Town Square, including the 20-mile Cache to Game loop that features terrain ranging from open meadows to steep, zigzagging single-track. A network compiled of 80 miles of trail, Big Holes is a popular choice for the local riders. The routes offer a variety of ridgetop crossings, steep descents, deep valleys, all while consuming views of the looming mountains.

Snowmass, Colorado

Roughly 10 miles from Colorado’s iconic town of Aspen, Snowmass is a less traveled but equally beautiful town with myriad mountain bike routes. The two towns are connected by alpine trails that appeal to both intermediate riders and those seeking black diamond thrills. Visit Sky Mountain Park, a 2,500-acre network of trails from Aspen to Snowmass Village to score all the area’s views. Staying closer to your Snowmass home base, check out the Rim Trail Loop, an 11-mile classic single-track and fast-rolling route that takes you past aspen and pine groves, all while you overlook Snowmass Village and snowcapped Rocky Mountain peaks.

Deer Valley, Utah

Deer Valley
is an alpine ski resort located inside Park City, Utah, nestled in the Wasatch Mountains. The upscale area offers over 70 miles of mountain biking trails that spread across six mountains, accessible by chairlift. You can even connect to Park City’s 400-mile network of single-track trail that boats all varieties of terrain. While it’s a great location for experts, mountain bike newbies can also rent bikes, take lessons, and embark on a solo or group adventure exploring the mountains.
