Midland Bike Trail

5.00 out of 5
View Topo Map


This is one of the most popular mountain biking routes in Buena Vista. The ride starts with a fun stretch of singletrack that climbs up from the Arkansas River. At the top, you'll find spectacular views of Mount Princeton and the southern Arkansas Valley from the old Midland Railroad grade along CR 304. Once you turn east, the trail returns to singletrack that slices through narrow stone cuts and drops into diversions that wind down through draws once spanned by rail trestles. The trail is approximately 7.3 miles from trailhead-to-trailhead, but it's possible to shorten the ride by turning back sooner.

Hiking is allowed here, but remember that this trail is meant for mountain bikers. Please practice trail etiquette and share the path.
Trail length: 7 miles

    The is a fantastic hike from right in town. There is a spur trail near the beginning of the Broken Boyfriend segment that heads up to the summit of the Sleeping Indian. This spur trail is foot travel only. It's a great hike to get out of town without leaving town.
