Angel Fire Bike Park, looking to cement its reputation as one of the best mountain biking destinations in the Rockies, has been aggressively working to grow its size and audience.

The Bike Park added more than 11 miles of trails last season, but that was only the beginning.

The park staff has been working to add 20 miles of new trails for expansion. The total of 60 miles of trails that will be open by the end of the summer is a 100 percent increase in riding terrain from just over a year ago.

“No other bike park in the Rockies is doing what we’re doing right now,” said Hogan Koesis, director of the Angel Fire Bike Park. “We have the incredible benefits of widely varying terrain, a privately owned mountain on which to develop a trail network, a long season to build and the full support of our resort ownership.”

While the mountain has long offered some of the best expert trails, the resort has worked hard to improve and expand the beginner and intermediate trails, so those new to riding can hone their skills in a safe and controlled environment.

“We are dedicated to creating the best experience and terrain for every level, from the novice to the expert,” Koesis said. “When you think of your bucket list of mountain biking spots we want every rider to add Angel Fire to the top. We’re creating the best playground for people to come out and learn everything they can about this sport.”
