Minturn Bike Park Opening: ‘A Free & New Community Asset’

Four years of planning and hard work was realized in Minturn on Friday when dozens of locals celebrated the opening of the Minturn Bike Park.

With mountains looming large in the background, and the park’s enormous jumps also towering above the crowd, a large group of stakeholders spaced themselves out around the pump track and dirt jumps to hold a ribbon which was cut by Minturn Town Councilmember Terry Armistead, symbolizing the park’s official opening.

Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance Executive Director Ernest Saeger said Armistead had been an early supporter of the park, dating back to the genesis of the idea, which first arose in 2016 when the alliance was building the Minturn Mini Mile trail nearby, in plain view of the area.
