Transit to Trails

DocumentThe Summit Stage and Open Space and Trails Departments are excited to partner together to provide accessible access to trailheads and to promote the County's sustainability goals through the use of public transportation.

The Transit to Trails program is a free service where recreators simply need to hop on the Summit Stage bus to access popular trailheads in Summit County. 

While there are numerous trails accessible from the many bus stops located in the County, this new program focuses specifically on 10 locations where trailheads are located within 1/4 to 1/2-mile of a Summit Stage bus stop. The goal is to add more trailheads to this program next year!

Riding your Bike to a Trailhead?

Bike racks can accommodate up to three bikes and are on a first-come first-served basis. No bikes are allowed inside of the bus. Class 1 E-bikes (no throttle) weighing <50 lbs are allowed. Class 2 and above E-bikes, or any bikes that weigh >50 lbs are NOT allowed. Learn how to use Summit Stage bike racks
