Enjoy the scenery of Mount Washington Resort by bike on our expansive Alpine or Valley Trail Mountain Biking Systems. Cross-Country (XC) trails and rentals are accessible from the Stone Pillar Lodge located near the Golf Clubhouse near Mount Washington Hotel. Our lift serviced alpine system of mountain biking trails is located across the street, at Bretton Woods Adventure Center. Here, experienced riders can weave their way down a series of trails designed with twists, turns and natural features to make for a fun and exhilarating ride down. Closed-toe shoes are required for Mountain Biking.
Take the chairlift to the top and wind your way down one of the mountain bike trails. For more information about mountain biking at Bretton Woods, please call the Adventure Center at (603) 278-3335.
Lift-Serviced Downhill Mountain Biking
Come explore the lift-serviced downhill mountain biking trails at Bretton Woods! Trail passes can be purchased for 2-hour, half-day or full-day increments. Mountain biking enthusiasts can purchase a season pass for unlimited access during normal operating hours. If you don't have your own mountain bike and would like to explore lift-served trails, we have full-suspension downhill mountain bikes for rent or you can rent one of our Mountain Scooters. Our mountain scooters have full-sized mountain bike tires and handle bars, but instead of pedals you stand on a skateboard-like platform.
Helmets and trail passes are required before proceeding to any lift-serviced terrain. Armor protection is encouraged. View summer trail maps.
