Mountain Biking

Open through October 9 for the 2022 season! Enjoy late summer and fall colors with a Late Season Bike Pass!

22 Miles of natural terrain. Let's Ride! Our Bike Park was built to complement the natural terrain of the mountain and create an exhilarating experience for advanced riders and easier terrain for beginners and those looking to improve their skills. The opportunities for exploration are nearly endless for riders of all ages and abilities. Our dedicated Trail Crew is committed to keeping the trails maintained all summer long. Our trails are YOUR trails! Come flow and find your moment!

Bike Park NEWS:  A new trail opens on North Face for the last three weeks of the bike season! Swayze Express will feature a large number of jumps, turns, rollers, and more!

The last day for the bike park will be October 9th! Make sure to get out and ride to take advantage of the beautiful fall season! We have a limited quantity of late-season passes now available!

Don’t forget we also have RFID technology - direct to lift with an RFID Go Card. The beauty of RFID media is that it is reloadable year after year, and if you already have one from ski season, you will also use it to bike! Isn't technology cool?

"I've ridden a lot of bike parks over the years, including Whistler in B.C., and The Highlands ranks as one of my top parks. You have really done a great job and I think you have something special. I talked with countless people today who drove over 3.5 hours to visit the park, another sign you are doing amazing things. I hope you continue to expand your trail system as I think this can be a true mountain bike destination in the country. I couldn't be happier to be a season pass holder. I'm looking forward to many more amazing rides at The Highlands."

Trail Details

The trails are suited for all abilities at The Highlands Bike Park. Our high-speed lift access, along with designated uphill routes, services two green trails for beginners, five blue trails for intermediate riders, five black trails for advanced mountain bikers, and two double black trails for experts.

The Highlands Bike Park’s gravity-fed trails offer a variety of singletrack that require minimal pedaling. From beginner features like Fun Run and Peach Fuzz to more extreme runs like Dirt Sample and Skid Mark, the park features a diverse mix of natural and man-made features – including step-ups, berms, and bridges – that will challenge riders of all levels.

Cross Country: For bikers who appreciate the path less traveled, our cross-country mountain bike trails offer a direct line to the heart of our lush, beautiful resort property. Whether you take it slow and absorb your surroundings, or speed things up for a satisfying workout in a spectacular setting, our trail network offers just what you're looking for.
