Hartman Rocks Road 41 Professional Reviews and Guides

"Hartman Rocks is one of the finest areas in the State of Colorado for singletrack riding and is the site of the famous “Rage in the Sage” mountain bike race held every year in early June. This area is well developed, has a number of trails—both singletrack and doubletrack—that intersect and connect to each other, and can be quite confusing. Don’t panic.

Lots of good riding is here, and you can go just about anywhere and not get lost. The rock formations are bizarre and add to the unique riding in this area. Don’t miss out on this great mountain bike area. Tread: 1.6 miles on paved roads, 5.1 miles on singletrack, and 6.4 miles on doubletrack."

"Hartman Rocks Recreation Area is a popular year-round destination for a host of outdoor enthusiasts that include hikers, mountain bikers, rock climbers, ATV/motorcyclists,
snowmobilers, and skiers/shoers. Crowded by Colorado standards in the summer, Hartman Rocks is a lot quieter and less crowded in the snowy winter months.

Located just a few miles and a few minutes outside of Gunnison, it consists of 160 acres at the base area managed by the City and County of Gunnison as well as an adjacent 8,000 acres of federal land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)."

"The Hartman Rocks area offers high desert riding in a 6,000-acre basin. Funky granite formations, slickrock, sand, and sage add to this geological curiosity's appeal. The Rocks, as Gunnison locals call it, is a mountain biking area replete with interconnecting trails. This route skirts the perimeter of the Hartman Rocks area and follows, in part, the Rage in the Sage course, Gunnison's annual mountain bike race.

Although the trails throughout Hartman Rocks can get confusing, this shouldn't deter you from riding the "Rocks," as efforts are continually being made to distinguish the right from the wrong way. Take notice of smaller rocks or sticks imbedded in the ground across a trail, signifying a wrong way. The trail rolls over hilly terrain and through sagebrush meadowland. Much of the terrain is hard-packed, but there are a number of rocky and sandy sections. Some sections go through riparian areas. The area offers seemingly endless miles of singletrack and dirt road that break off in every direction."

This trail system rocks. Visit the local bike shops to get a map and good directions for the ride you are looking for. I rode a single speed, 34/18 and the trails were very kind to me. Technical, Rolling Single Track, with an abundant of trails to ride it different every time. Sunset..SeaofSage..Singletrack..Sweet.
