The Mineral Belt Trail is a 12 mile, paved, route that circles the city of Leadville.  It passes through historic mining districts, tall aspen groves, and flowering meadows.  It is designed for biking but also accommodates wheelchairs, skaters, and those who prefer to walk.   You will see amazing views of the Sawatch and Mosquito mountain ranges from the Mineral Belt.  The trail also overlooks Leadville.  
 
Another favorite ride is the road that circles beautiful Turquoise Lake.
 
Single-track, dirt bike routes abound in the Lake County area.  Come explore the mountains by bike!
