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 146th most popular mountain bike trail of all 175 mountain biking rides in Colorado.
