Bike Granby Ranch is located in the heart of Mountain Bike Capital USA™, between Winter Park, Arapaho National Forest, and Rocky Mountain National Park. The resort's downhill, cross-country, and family biking trails draw cyclists from far and wide, and are enjoyed by experts and beginners alike.
Bike Granby Ranch focuses on downhill-specific trails while offering green beginner DH and freeride trails. Looping cross-country trails go around the mountain and the bike park offers seven trails for beginners and intermediates to work on their skills. Four black diamond and double-black diamond biking trails push the limits of even the most expert downhill mountain bikers.
Bike Granby Ranch (formerly Sol Vista) was a hotbed of gravity racing in the Rocky Mountains, and its notoriously raw courses and huge features still loom large in the minds of locals. The trail crew has put in serious effort in recent seasons to make much of the park more accessible with new green trails and beginner programs, but make no mistake—this is still big bike territory, with plenty of air time and wheel-smashing to be had for those who want it. Granby's raw terrain, small crowds and freindly vibe make it a favorite for those looking for something more than the manicured flow of the neighboring Trestle Bike Park.
Beyond the Bike Park
Bike Granby Ranch provides easy access to miles of family-friendly cross-country trails. In total there are 19 lift-served XC trails for beginner to expert riders.

Bike Granby Ranch (formerly SolVista Bike Park) is home to some of the best downhill trails and terrain in the West. Located in the heart of Mountain Biking Capital USA, you'll find an expansive cross-country network, as well as lift-served mountain biking catering to a broad range of riders. The park used to be known for its giant features including big gap jumps and wood drops that only the advanced riders could hit. While there is still plenty to scare most riders, Granby Ranch has changed their tune to appeal to a wider range of riders. The downhill, cross-country, and family biking trails draw cyclists from far and wide, and are enjoyed by expert thrill-seekers and beginners alike. In addition to changing some of the existing trails, some of the newer trails are beginner friendly with the ability to roll through all the features, but are also fun for the more seasoned riders to rip through and enjoy the fast and flowy nature of the trails.
