BIKE TRAIL DESCRIPTIONS:

Candyland is a 1.5 mile beginner/ intermediate level downhill flow trail featuring large berms, medium and small sized table tops, and hip jumps. All features on Candyland are roll-able, making it an ideal trail to learn on, and perfect for gravity-based mountain biking skills.

 

 Smorgasbord is a 1 mile intermediate level freeride/ downhill mountain bike trail featuring large berms, medium size jumps, a drop, and rock gardens. Several features on Smorgasbord are mandatory, including small 3-4 foot gaps, and a 5-foot drop.

 

 Happy Camper is an easier downhill trail with features including small jumps, berms, and rollers.  This trail is perfect for beginners who are just learning downhill skills, but is also a fun trip for an expert rider.  "Happy Camper" is a directional trail, which means that when the chairlift is running it is signed as a DOWNHILL ONLY trail. 

When the chairlift is not running, it is used as an UPHILL ONLY climbing trail.  By offering this uphill climbing option, you now have access to our awesome trails all the time!  When the chairlift isn't running, you just have to work a little harder for it.  *Please note that we do not have Bike Patrol on duty when the chairlift isn't running so please use extra caution and be careful on the trails.   


 Blaster is a more difficult downhill single-track trail with features including lots of rocks, roots, and very little dirt.  This trail gets very steep in areas and is a true test of your downhill riding abilities.  Experienced riders only!

 

Wildcat is a freeride trail that will test your skills!  This trail is a black diamond, experienced riders only. 

 

Boss Hog features our Jump Line with a series of legit gap jumps.  Double black diamond, experienced riders only.
