Northeast of Gunnison, the Contour Trail (#3213T) is a six mile one-way route. The Contour Trail can be combined with the adjacent Ridgeline Trail and Old Car Trail to form loops.
There is a good trailhead for the Contour Trail on the northeastern edge of Western State Colorado University. There are several parking lots that are open to day use.
Note: there is very little signage along this route. Matter-of-fact, as of May 2012, there are no signs indicating the name of the Contour Trail. About halfway along the trail, there is a sign indicating the trail number, #3213T.
Overall, Contour Trail is the 152nd most popular mountain bike trail of all 175 mountain biking rides in Colorado. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Contour Trail including Colorado Trail - Lost Canyon Loop, Hartman Rocks, Agate Creek Trail, Canyon Creek Trail and Ridgeline Open Space.
